What does depression feel like: a story in 20 quotes

I’m usually quite good with words to be honest, but lately it feels like I have lost all touch. Well that is not completely true, but I have definitely lost the way of telling of how I feel mental health wise. That is really bugging me. Because it is needed. So I found Some quotes that might explain what depression feels like to me.

These quotes are filled with emotions. Emotions I feel right now or have felt in the recent past. I think it’s important to let people know how it can feel for sufferers, because in all honesty we need people. People who reassure us, let us know we are loved.
