“I’m afraid to live and I’m afraid to die. What a way to exist.”

I think the most difficult part of finding my way during my battle with suicidal depression has been trying to explain how I feel. I believe that, in a way, there really is not a word that adequately describes the anguish that you feel when you’re being destroyed from the inside out by an intangible force. The attached article illustrates some of the emotions that one can feel when experiencing depression and anxiety. I have found that using resources like this article has helped me to articulate my feelings and emotions more effectively when conveying them to the ones I love. Hopefully, it will do the same for you, or at least help you to better understand what your loved one is going through.
