    “Embarrassing” Symptoms of Depression We Don’t Talk About

    Comments 45

    1. I can never sleep long enough, I only get around 4-6 hours of sleep, which is not as much as the doctor recommends for teenagers.

    2. Don’t forget another us not being able to sleep. I can go for days without sleep, cause I just can’t

    3. You should totally have at least A TON more subscribers
      This channel is probably the most informative about these kinds of topics, meanwhile all the shitty vloggers get a butt load more attention and praise when they crappily talk about it maybe once for ten minutes. This channel is great at making your problems seem more "normal" and making you feel less alone with your bs.

    4. I had two friends from college who were bipolar. Their symptoms manifested after I knew them for about 2 years. After graduation, they sank into depression and would not bathe. Both gained over 150 pounds and one was unable to hold down a job.

      The one who was able to work would beg me to visit (a 3 hour drive) then lash out in anger if I didn't know the answer to her questions on obscure topics or if I couldn't help with her kids fast enough. Getting the right balance of counselling and medication was difficult for her and she took it out on everyone. The other lives with relatives and attends an out-patient facility half day. He is socially incapacitated and has severe anxiety issues.

      I miss who they were. I'm sure they do as well.

    5. Thanks for the video. If only foolish doctors knew how to actually help people and actually understood anything at all lol. Maybe people with depression should treat depression..

    6. I try to explain to my parents about depression and anxiety, but they think they know everything!

    7. The smallest thing can send me into a terrible state of mind. Saying something I deem stupid in a conversation or like I just failed a test that was worth 25 % of my grade and I feel so pathetic and helpless for feeling devastated.

    8. I really want to be a teacher, but the brain fog is so bad that I wonder if I can still be one. Sometimes I even get brain fog while talking to my therapist. But I am working on it. 🙂 We're all in this fight together, guys. 🙂

    9. At last…. someone has articulated everything I have been unable to describe. Thank you for putting this out there. X

    10. To everyone with depression: I can't fully comprehend what you are going through, but I support you and hope that things will get better for you. Remember that you aren't alone!

    11. I relate to all of these. Also wearing the same thing for days or even weeks, and not washing your clothes

    12. DEPRESSION A VERY MODERN DAY" SICKNESS THAT KILLS THOUSANDS" BY THE HOUR" WORLD WIDE ! 20 YEARS AGO I WAS 27 YEAR OLD " AND HAD LOST 12 FRIENDS TO DEPRESSION ! AND KNOW OF MORE THAN 20 MORE PEOPLE I HAVE MET IN MY LIFE" WHO ARE NO LONGER ALIVE! THANX TO THIS GOVERNMENT MADE KILLER ! ENGLAND HAS THE LARGEST SUICIDE RATE IN THE WORLD ! THE CITY OF MANCHESTER HAS THE LARGEST SUICIDE RATE IN ENGLAND " MY TOWN OF OLDHAM HAS THE LARGEST SUICIDE RATE IN MANCHESTER ! SO THAT MAKES MY HOME TOWN THE WORLD'S NO 1 SUICIDE TOWN IN THE WORLD ! BY STATISTICAL FACT !

    13. Sooo true all of them. You know you might experience these symptoms at some point and not even no it’s depression. Thank you for sharing and all the comments too show that most of us have these experiences some times and there’s no shame at all, just human n there are people out there who can relate x

    14. I bathe because my parents will rail up at me I'd I don't but honestly I feel like I just don't care . Everything else in this video is so true for me.

    15. Can’t completely relate to this, but I remember that brain fog. I would often forget things and then my mother would start calling me sick.

    16. I back out on plans and cover it with saying it's a sinus headach. I feel like some of my friends wouldn't understand if I told them what was up.

    17. Honestly I rather have depression than anxiety… I don't get sleep. At least when I was depressed I slept.

    18. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Suffer with depression for many years, it has become worse since 2013.
      Severely Worse ! My "support team" is not really says they are here for me, etc… When I am having a really really rough time they kinda of disappear. What is that about ? I have even made a list of things that I need in those moments for them, yet suddenly they kinda of disappear. They are my family members. When they are not truly here for me it causes my depression to become worse.

    19. idfk how much i weigh or how much i've weighed throughout my life but i tend to not eat when i'm at my lowest. i either forget, or i choose not to bc of some weird need of having some thing I can control. idfk. (i'm better now tho there is a light at the end of that damn tunnel guys)

    20. Yes! Thank you for this! I had depression in high school and it was so hard, but it
      gets better even if it seems like your whole world is falling apart, I know the feeling.

    21. I have all of these and i feel like i cant keep going forever i’ll either get help or kill myself but my parents think im okay because i have no reason to be depressed and they’ll never let me get help

    22. I'm depressed and I don't really know what to do. Even the psychiatrist I went to makes me frustrated, things are just so bad feeling. People only care when I make a big deal about it even though to me everyday it feels like a big deal.

    23. A lot of these symptoms sound like ADHD or someone with hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormones) so I would get that checked if you've been diagnosed with depression…

    24. God, the brain fog is so annoying. I can look back at my grades and pinpoint exactly when I had my worst depressive episodes by where my grades drop. The weird part is I don't actually remember what happened at those times because I'd dissociate so frequently and get dissociative amnesia.

    25. The personal hygiene ones especially brushing my teeth and showering I really struggled with

    26. Depression is honestly the worst. Toss it together with some anxiety and paranoia and BOOM, you’ve got a disaster cocktail that just keeps refilling itself.

    27. I really love food but depression turned eating into another chore. Sometimes i skip meals because i'm too tired to eat. And when i have a few days when i feel slightly better i raid the kitchen like man starving (which i sorta was). This means that my weigh goes up and down like a roller coaster. And it sucks

    28. Im so mad that the reason these arent talked about is because they cant be easily made to look beautiful or poetic. Depression isnt just feeling sad. You cant do things. You literally cant.

    29. I need help. I'm just beating myself up basically and not being motivated to do anything but I'm afraid to tell my parents. What should I do?
