Recently I've felt myself slipping back into a depression, I've become extremely emotional, crying from everything, irritable, short tempered, snappy... I've been trying so hard to reach out to my best friend..but every time I message her she couldn't care less to ask how I'm doing and only talks about herself and this guy she likes.. This isn't normal for us... we used to talk on a daily basis and about everything, if I wanted a drink I'd go to her and she'd help me through it. I don't know what's going on, or why this is happening with all of my friends really, they've all become so distant, and it's severely contributing to my depression and there's nothing more I can do... I feel so alone, and normally, my boyfriend who has been one of my best friends for the past few years would pick up on my depression sinking in again, but even he has seemed distant recently... I'm trying to stay connected, but I know this disease... the more I try and the more they withdrawal, the more I sink into the darkness. I'm not sure how much longer I can fight off this depression, how much longer I can keep fighting to save the happy, cheerful girl that lives inside of me...somewhere...
