I am notoriously bad at recognising depression so I thought I’d write this as a reminder.

Signs I am heading back to depression:

  1. I stop straightening my hair, wearing make up & jewellery
  2. I don’t bother to dye my hair
  3. I actually don’t want to self harm, I want to die
  4. My living environment becomes disgusting – clothes everywhere, unwashed dishes, stuff left on the floor where I dropped it, unopened post, bathroom & kitchen left dirty, bin overflowing
  5. I sleep through 5 alarms & am regularly late for work
  6. I can’t find things I had 30 seconds ago
  7. I wear pretty much the same thing everyday
  8. At work I spend my time staring at my screen or playing sudoku on my phone
