Question What is it to be depressed?

I need to clear something up that I'm sure you guys can help with. I don't know if I can count as I was a depressed person or if i was just very sad. About two years ago I had a few months where I felt the worst i've ever felt in my life. To the point I was crying every weekday morning because I didn't want to go to school. It wasn't anything to do with the people it was the teacher. She made my life a misery. She made me feel worthless because I wasn't very good at maths and she made out that I was doing amazing when I really needed help. I thought I would just share my story. Please don't give me loads of hate saying you didn't have the mental health illness. I know I didn't, but I think everyone should be able to feel depressed and hopeless because then it is the job of the people to help them out. Please reply below and I can truly understand what my feelings are...

Everyone will face a "depressive episode" at some point in their lives. Sure, it's a characteristic of a depressive disorder, but you don't need to have depression to suffer from depressive episodes. They can sprout from:
- A bereavement
- Stress
- Changes in the routine (usually negative ones)
- Trouble at school or work
- More.

They can last from a couple of weeks to a couple of years. With the right help anyone can get through depressive episodes and overcome the feelings like you clearly did. I hope this helped at all.

i'm unstable, pull me through / call my name, i'm feeling blue
