It’s been a while since I’ve been thinking if I should make a post about this. This is going to be a bit long but here goes..
This past year, I’ve been struggling with Depression and Anxiety. It hasn’t been easy to deal with all this while trying to stay the nice lil cheerful person that I want to be.
You never know when it’ll hit you, or why. It can happen at times when you (should) feel happy, or you can just feel numb, for days. You never feel successful or good enough. When the episode ends you think it’s finally gone forever but it comes back. People try to help you and you want to let them but you push them away. The anxiety makes you scared most of the time about the simplest things. And when something bad happens it gets worse. People normally think you’re overreacting and don’t treat any of this as a serious issue. HOWEVER, I’ve been blessed with caring loved ones that I can talk to and faith in God and that all of this can pass, and that I can get through this. If you’re someone who suffers from the same thing, talk about it. Your feelings are valid and God didn’t create us to feel horrible our whole lives. This can go away. Do whatever it takes. I’m determined that I won’t stay like this and that I can win this war inshaAllah. If you feel like you’re alone, or that no one understands, this is for you. There is always hope. The darkest hour of the night is right before dawn.
