Depression is linked to Anxiety

This is how I am feeling since the last 3 months.

It is a daily struggle to keep calm and fake happiness.

I feel weak, helpless, hopeless, anxious, sad, stupid, and angry.

Nobody understands. Nobody listens.

Three months. A week will not pass without tears falling.

Its time to see a doctor.

Time to take care of myself.

Make the black dog go away

This is a nice video from WHO (World Health Organization) describing depression by associating it with a black dog.

Seek help. Do not let the black dog bully you.

I write for Calmness and Sanity

Writing is my therapy and psychology is my passion. Through writing I can strip my soul naked uncensored. I can share my thoughts anonymously with no judgmental comments on my person-hood or past and at the same way I do not judge peoples’ comments for we do not know each other. The whole online world is my audience and listeners (readers). I am writing to organize my thoughts and let go my feelings.  Others may read it or not, like it or not. The comfort I gain from writing is when I have publicized parts of my hidden self and somehow someone will know about it. It is a way of going out of my shell. It is my way of sharing when nobody listens. It is my way of confiding when everybody else is busy with their own personal concerns. It is my way of connecting to others whenever I feel alone.

I write because I know I can connect to people who can relate to my posts. People who read that put a like or a comment is an affirmation that I am not alone in my struggles. It provides comfort that somebody listens and can relate to my dilemmas.

I write for my calmness and sanity.

I am a business graduate who later on studied clinical psychology realizing that understanding people is my passion. I would like to share to the world my knowledge and reconnect to like-minded individuals who are also fascinated, curious and continuously wanting to learn more about people behavior, personality, character and cognition. Mental wellness (psychology) is for all and can be applied on everyday life.
