Description

People with depression have their own metaphors to describe their suffering. For me, when it hits, it’s like being trapped in a deep freshly dug grave. Dark, cold, damp, my fingers scrape at the earth, scrambling to pull myself out. All I feel is the never ending darkness devouring me.
