Depression is a weird thing. It manifests in so many ways. There’s the common symptoms: Lack of energy, lack of intrest, lethargy, lack of focus. There’s also some folks that throw themselves into something in an attempt to avoid their feelings.
“I don’t have time to stay in bed, I have a deadline.”
“I can’t eat. I have more important things to do.”
“I forgot to do something important. I have to push myself harder next time.”
These folks don’t seem outwardly depressed. In fact, they seem like very productive and together people. If you look closley, these same folks are trying to bury somehing that could ultmately kill them. They tend to burn out fast and their crash is worse because of the overwork.
Just because people seem on top of things on the outside, that isn’t always the case.
