Depression is like Locked In Syndrome

Source

But instead of the body being paralyzed it’s the mind…

Imagine living in a physically functioning and “healthy” body but being so far lost in yourself that it feels like you’re either on auto pilot or invaded by a new host. This host is more like a child like version of yourself that is terribly afraid and unable to fully function in the version of your world that you are presently living in. A negative copy of self.

Well, I guess I’m just trying to put it into words and synonyms help.

I’m happy to be out, but the negligence of depression is quite evident and I’m just trying to pick up the pieces, dust off the old saddle and get back on the horse. I just can’t help but think I’m going to go hard and fast for a few amazing months and then 💥 the rug gets pulled from under my feet… yet another time. But hey, I’m trying to be tough without getting too calloused.

I am human patiently accepting myself. I am unapologetic about being wild, and untamed. I am always open to new things and I only accept good vibe and positive energies. I love people and life and the world is my playground. I love children, animals and elderly people. I write to express and understand my thoughts, feeling and behaviors. It's self therapy and a visualization tool. I am a selfish loner at times a very sensitive INTJ. I am an aspiring psychological disorders and consumer behavior researcher and practitioner, living with Bipolar 1.
