depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like what
Having both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.

I have heard it said that one of the most liberating experiences is to hear another soul voice your thoughts in times when you cannot summon the courage to put them into words yourself. It is a time when you can respond, like a knee-jerk reaction, ‘Yes, exactly!’
It is liberating because it is validating. It is proof that experiences, no matter how remote or rare, may not be unique to just a single person on this green earth. It is a form of solidarity and a remedy to the dreaded loneliness that we all vehemently seek to avoid.
Having said that, I will let you draw your own conclusions when I say that my own experience, particularly that of my time as neither living nor dead, can come only from my mouth.
Loneliness was only the start.
