I have depression. It comes and goes. Chronic depression, I guess. I was told "clinical depression", but googling that brings "Major Depressive Disorder", and that just sounds really bad so I try not to call it that. I sought help for a while, saw a psychotherapist. It worked for a while but recently it's just been coming back. I haven't told my therapist that yet. I probably should.
It's apparently obvious when I'm going through something, because I've been told my depression tends to make me act out of character in a variety of different ways. Sometimes I get a bit on edge, sometimes I lash out at people, sometimes I refuse to actually do anything, and sometimes I tend to just go completely unresponsive.
On another note, in some weird twist of fate, simply having
some form of depression contributes to my depression. It makes me question whether or not I truly have a disorder, or if I'm simply aware of where I am in life.
