Parked in neutral

When I take my prescribed antidepressants (Zoloft) what happens is I don’t feel anything in particular. I’m not sad or happy. I feel numbingly neutral, to the point where I want to feel something.

What does depression look like ?

I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 18 and this is what I experience when I’m having an episode. The first signs are usually my decreased appetite and tendency to oversleep. My triggers are stress-related and lately it has been the transitional period of life I’m in right now where things are all up in the air.

The experience of having a depressive episode is something I have found people often misunderstand and drawing this was extremely cathartic.
