depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like whatHaving both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.
how dare u ignore me after ive made 0 attempts at talking to u
person: so how have you been?
me: a bit up and down
translation: i go through phases of crippling depression and suicidal ideation from anywhere between a day to a month in length, and between those phases i have a few days or weeks where i actually feel functional. so it evens out i guess?
