Depression-has-hit-me-so-bad-that-i-have-forgotten

From foobie: Depression has hit me so bad that I have forgotten how to shade. I know how to draw still but I get stuck when I have to do the shading part. What brought me joy has turned to disinterest. I am avoiding doing school work because I don’t know how to do it now. I think I have completely burned myself out. I just don’t want to do anything anymore. I’m so tired. I used to have so many ideas but I don’t know how to put them into my work anymore

Hi there foobie,

It sucks to feel like we’re losing skills we used to have, and particularly hurts when the joy of old hobbies gets lost. That’s so tough and can lead to this spiral of exhaustion, because why is it worth doing anything, when nothing feels worthwhile – when there’s no joy?

Everything you’re going through is real, and it’s understandable that it hurts. We’re here for you as you work your way through these challenges. Things can get better, but yeah, it sounds like they suck right now.

Here for you,
<3 Tuna
