You can’t hear my brain

ugly words

What do you have to be depressed about?

You have a wonderful husband.
My brain doesn’t feel his arms around me.

You live in a nice house.
My brain only see the dust.

You look younger than you really are.
My brain only sees ugliness.

You are so slim.
My brain sees a fat cow.

You have nice clothes.
My brain doesn’t care what I wear.

Why can’t you just smile and think happy thoughts?
Why can’t you hear my brain screaming?

  1. Exactly right! I have, by most measurements, a life far better than most people. And yet depression is my norm. I guess that’s the hardest thing for normative people to realize. They might have sympathy, but they don’t have empathy.
