Yea, I know exactly how you feel! Your not yourself with depression - like your in your own head. But honestly you haven't been lost you are still there! That bubbly, cute, kind, caring, animal lover who enjoys speaking to people will never change. You're just having a battle in your head but I can promise you that you will win!! Just never give up!! Never stop fighting!! No surrender and when you make it through and face your fears you will be the most free you have ever been!!! You will be smashing out best selling books and not looking back! If you ever need anything or need someone to talk I'm here for you. ❤

I was already a boring person but I prefer to call it being a simple person. I don't need much to be happy. However depression is a horrible thing to go through and you can't always just choose to not be depressed or just get over it. Depression is a chemical imbalance done can fall into deep depression without even realizing it.

It comes with the "crippling loneliness that prevents you from enjoying/trying new things" I know the solution is to "get out there and meet new people in the real :D" but honestly when your social battery is constantly in the red.. thats a tall order

Not so much bland or boring, but definitely more of burden if I try to explain my problems to others so I tend to just keep quiet about it and say I don't feel well. But over time I've been able to open up a bit more about it and though it doesn't always make me feel better, it does feel nice to voice it out.

You need a right person to share problems with and definitely a free time. It's okay. You should vent however you feel like. Why do you feel depressed ?

It has made me less emotional than I used to be. And took away alot of my enthusiasm for many things. Sad.

Who decides what's boring and what's not? I don't think depression makes you "boring"; obviously your behaviour changes and so does the way you express yourself, but one person saying that you're boring cause "you're not like you used to be" doesn't mean you actually are. What's boring for some people could be intriguing af for others.

Yes, that’s true. I feel like I tell myself that and with my lack of communication skills when I’m sad I feel like I can’t keep conversations going too well when I’m like that

No, the manic part gets pretty interesting from an outside point of view and pepper in the borderline personality disorder and goodbye boredom. Not fun, but not boring. Time passes pretty quickly during those episodes.

Do you think maybe that coukd be your depression voice trying to tell you you're boring now? I'll bet you're just as cool and fun as before you just don't see it in yourself anymore.

Would say it's a strength rather than a weakness, made me more Empathetic and patient. Part of it is not examine your self to closely when your depression blinkers are on. Can make you to hard on yourself and see things that aren't there.

You’re right, that makes so much sense. I do tend to over analyze things and assume stuff when I’m upset. Awful habit of mine.
