I have been depressed for a long time, over 2 years. The thing is, most people i know have no idea. its like i have gone through a time warp and for the last 2 years, i know little of whats going on in the world. the thing that i realize that makes me different than some people, is that they pay attention to what's going on the world, it seems like people can talk a lot about events and people around the world. is it a symptom of depression- lack of interest in the world and just not being that interested in telling stories? it just seems like my depression has put my mind in a fog, and when in a group of people, it seems like I can't keep up with what's going on. I kind of tend to focus on my thoughts, and get distracted easily from conversations. I also can't talk for a long period of time, unless im with someone i know well. i just don't feel comfortable or have trouble focusing or finding the words. anyone experience this?
