i think i've been depressed this whole semester. i mean... it makes sense, it's not like i haven't been depressed before or won't be again. and i certainly don't feel the worse i've ever felt. not near it. the thing is... i would say about half of the symptoms of major depression i experience ALL of the time. well... most of the time at least. so, i guess, am i depressed, or is this just me? am i just, at best, a mildly depressed person? i'm thinking i should probably start eating even better than i already do, lose 10-15 pounds, and avoid falling in love. heartache just rips me apart. i don't think i can take it much more.
