I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality
you didn’t have time to be a person before depression
and it’s scary having no idea who you are
Which parts are my charming quirks and which parts are my crippling malfunctions? Who’s to say? Am I being true to myself, or am I massively self-sabotaged? Is my writing a symptom? It actually might be. Gosh.
Is this a thing normal people worry about?
