Does anyone remember what it’s like not to be depressed/ have depression? I can’t remember and I’m questioning if I ever have had a period of my life without depression.

      Sometimes, from when I was really little. All that love and freedom.

      ✋Therapist knowledge: Depression erases or blocks times when you've had joy in your life. When my therapist told me this, I was floored. It's like I knew I was happy at times, but I couldn't remember when it happened. Depression wants to be right so it blocks out good memories. Walk through photos or outline events to try and disrupt that.

      some days it's hard to remember times when i was happy because depression tended to blend my days together into one muddy mess. other days it feels like it's all i can think about since i want to go back. it can be challenging

      Nope, no idea what being "normal" feels like. My dad was suicidal from the day I was born, so I was immersed in it my whole life it's all I've known.
