I decided to draw a series of pictures, explaining what depression and other mental illnesses can feel like.
Since I myself found it hard now and then, to explan hiw exactly I was feeling, to friends and family, I thought, maybe I could illustrate it, using metaphors and drawings. So, sometimes my mind is so full of thoughts, crowded and loud, that I can't even hear myself thinking properly.
But at the same time, I don't feel sad or angry, I just feel a kind of emptyness, numb, short: Nothing.
And in that situation it can be hard to explain to people how you feel, because, technically you _don't_ feel anyting, but your also not okay.
I hope this helps some people, or simply gives a small view into mental illness to those not affected by it.
Also, if you are suffering from depression or other mental illnesses, please seek help and support. You are not alone.
