Depression is something which is often misunderstood. People suffering from depression actually know how it feels. You just don't want to do anything rather than lying around at your place. Depression has some complications which most of you are not aware of. Depression often arises when a person starts blaming himself/herself for some other person's unhappiness.
Following is a list of stages through which a depressed person goes through.
When you ask a depressed person about their health, you often get a usual response-"I'm fine". This response, most of the time is not true. Depressed people often say this to get some personal space to deal with their problems.
Depressed people tend to ignore other people and want to be alone. They don't want to get out of their personal space and get out of their houses. They need a certain amount of time to sort out their difficulties before they come out.
Depressed people pass fake smiles and lie about their happiness. They make others believe that they don't have problems, but deep inside they know that they are still suffering from depression. They do this so that others don't think of them as crazy.
While one is suffering from depression, it is not at all true that they remain sad all the time. Depressed people often get cheered up when they see a beautiful TV show or when their friends come over, but this does not mean that their problems have gone away.
When you are depressed, even the heavenly taste of pizza gets bad. People get so engrossed with their personal thoughts that they tend not to like even the pizza!
Some of the depressed people start doing drugs or alcohol to forget their pain. Alcohol gets you into a zone where you tend to forget all your problems and enjoy your life.
If you are depressed, you don't feel like getting up to pick it up. If you are asked to, it feels like a struggle to do so.
If you think that if a person is depressed, he/she cannot love, then you might be wrong. Depressed people actually love better as they are always careful not to spoil the relationship.
