I wish I could give you IRL hugs.

Stay away from places that don't give you comfort.

Just hang on until bedtime. You can watch TV, or read a textbook.

I know it's really hard to concentrate when you're depressed.

When I was really depressed, I found it hard to read long sentences. I would forget what the beginning of the sentence was about by the time I got to the end.

I felt like a moron. An idiot.

And the worst part of it was that I was (like you) a student. So I still had a lot of demands, and most of them were cognitive demands- being able to write well, and remember the results of the data that I analysed earlier that day. Being able to carry on a conversation with a professor. Being able to read an article and understand it.

It's okay to take a break this evening.

Just be safe, okay?

Take extra good care of you, because I want you around in a little while. Then you can be like me and tell someone what you felt like when you were really depressed. You can help someone too.

Are you sleeping okay? Are you able to eat?

Please call your pdoc tomorrow-- even though the Big D (depression) is saying that you "LIKE" feeling so bad, it's a lie. You DESERVE to feel relief.

((((((more gentle hugs for you))))))
