You just keep going and hope no one notices your sadness. But, it’s becoming unbearable…
At work, it’s business as usual. You get up, get ready, and GRIND throughout your day. You don’t want anyone at work to pick up on your BAD MOOD so you overcompensate. So, you offer to do additional projects and stay late to help out until you finally leave for the night.
But now that you’re by yourself, the overwhelming feelings of SADNESS reappear. You don’t want to feel this way. In fact, your friends and family have encouraged you to “let it go” and told you to “snap out of it.” But it really isn’t that simple.
By the time you get home, all you want to do is put on your pajamas and crawl under the covers. Even on a Friday night, when the rest of your friends are out celebrating the start of the weekend, you can be found on your couch. You don’t have the MOTIVATION or the DESIRE to do anything other than binge Netflix and chill.
People are starting to notice your depression, so you try and hide it.
Your close family and friends have noticed this change in your mood. They make comments about how you never come out with them anymore. You know they’re irritated that you haven’t called or texted in a while, but you simply can’t pick up the phone. You don’t want to make small talk and you certainly don’t want to join them for happy hour when you FEEL LIKE CRAP. When you finally do call or text them back, you make up an excuse about how busy you are at work and cross your fingers and hope that they buy it.
You keep trying to convince yourself that these feelings are normal and it’s okay to feel down every once and awhile. But, the reality is, YOU FEEL SAD MORE OFTEN THAN NOT. You haven’t felt like yourself in a really long time. You no longer find joy or pleasure in doing the things you used to enjoy. Maybe, you’re nervous about actually telling other people what you’re going through. You don’t want to burden them and make them worry about you. So you suffer in silence.
Depression HURTS, but it doesn’t have to be a part of your life forever!
These are all SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION in women. Depression affects not only your mood, but your energy levels, and your motivation to do the things you used to enjoy. It isn’t something you can just “snap out” of, no matter how hard you try. You may be able to mask it for a while. In fact, at work, you may be called an overachiever, but the reality is you’re just taking on more responsibilities to distract yourself from the way you feel. You really don’t want anyone else to know that you’re suffering.
