People experience depression differently. Some people have the energy to carry on daily activities while others can’t even manage to get out of bed or home. I’m the latter. I will lie still in bed, or on other surfaces for hours and stare at whatever that is close to me. Things seem enlarged and more vivid in colour, and sometimes, just sometimes, they partially fill the void in my mind.

This is what I saw, do you feel what I felt?

morning sun, the wall and the lamp: they calm me down while making me anxious at the same time, a new day makes me anxious | (c)2018 Yuhan Pan
