I’m smack bang in the middle of Depression, I’ve felt all five stages since Monday, sometimes they come together in a giant wave, and I start to drown, and other times I feel them individually.
Right now all I feel is depression, I feel slimy but unmotivated to do anything about it, I just sit on the couch sinking right into the cushions, hoping the couch will swallow me whole.
I’m exhausted but I’m sleeping, everything seems to just take a level of motivation that I don’t have, and I even question the point of eating or drinking. I see my previous miscarriages, I feel the grief I felt then like it was yesterday and I regress.
I feel hollow like my heart has been swallowed, and everything around me just has a hint of grey. It’s nothing, no sadness, no feeling, just an empty vase. I wish I could cry so this feeling will leave me, then I wouldn’t feel bad I haven’t cried yet today.
But the depression stays, I stay in a constant feeling of emptiness, I just want to stay inside and vegetate. My phone stays on silent and I just ride this wave out, I keep having to remind myself that I’ve done it before, but right now I don’t see the light.
I don’t want to do anything, my leg isn’t comfortable but I can’t move it, and I just feel empty. I’m hoping that writing about it will help me, but more importantly, I think it can be helpful for couples going through this.
