Editor’s Note: This article comes from a blog written by someone who struggles with depression.  She gives us an insight into what it is like living with depression.  But most importantly, she shows us what it is like to be aware of the affliction and how she struggles to live with and conquer it.  Acceptance that there is a problem is the first step to finding a solution.

Over the week that has just passed, I think I just brewed a perfect mixture to make me prone to depression.

Here’s the list on how to be prone to depression:

  • 3-4 hours of sleep everyday (or better yet, erratic sleeping)
  • 2 days to none at all of physical exercise
  • 4-5 cups of coffee everyday
  • 2-3 bags of chips
  • 0 intake of fish oil (that has EPA and DHA which are anti-depressants)
  • different time sked for meals
  • different time sked for pill intake
  • unbalanced meal
  • a deadline to beat
  • super high expectation for oneself
To make it worse, one or all of the things listed below will help:
  • toxic relationship with a partner(lover/husband/wife)
  • poor family communication
  • zero social support
If you really want to be depressed, then you can do the following:
  • deny that you need help from others
  • keep all the problems to yourself
  • never express your feelings
  • involve yourself in stressful situations like illicit affairs, illegal acts, etc.
Symptoms that your ways to be depressed may be effective:
  • always shouting in anger
  • extremely quiet
  • out of focus
  • lack of interest in anything
  • insomnia or hypersomnia
  • and a lot others
