My depressive episode has gotten even worse. I need support and encouragement that this isn’t going to last forever.

I’ve been in the worst depressive episode of my life since Thanksgiving. For the past couple weeks I felt I was making small progress. I was able to get out of bed, I was able to speak, eat, text, join this community (and thank God I did because you guys and one other friend is the ONLY support group I have) but for the past 6 days I’ve slid right back into an even deeper worse episode. How is that even possible? For 5 days straight I laid in bed in the dark and didn’t eat, only stayed hydrated. Today is day 6 and I’m going to try to eat later and it took every being in my body to get a shower and brush my teeth after a week. I have only been on my new meds for a month and recently went up to 20mg, I just wish it’d hurry and work! I feel like everything is impossible. I have no hope that things will ever get better. This is the longest episode I’ve ever been in. Do they normally last this long?? I just really need some encouragement that I will get better and this won’t last forever. I’m so tired of feeling dead inside. #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Anxiety #hopeless #NeedEncouragement #Supportme #DepressiveEpisode

Self-appreciation post no. 1 :)

This is a photo I took right after a shower and washed my hair. And one of my many goals this year is to practice self-love and try to look in the mirror and like what I see as much as I can. I've had many relationship downfalls over the past several months and it's caused me to be super anxious and insecure with the way I look and then some (also caused me to gain some weight) Which is one of the reasons why I'm posting this: to encourage others who are afraid to do the same. If you're out there reading this, you most likely know what it's like to battle this. And I'm here to tell you you're definitely NOT alone. This is the first photo I posted of myself and I encourage YOU to do the same. Use the hashtags "self-appreciation" and "practiceselflove" and tag me or anyone you might like and post it on here :)
