Nobody Knew

Dear Diary,

The seasons changed. And so did my mood. I felt sad a lot more than usual. My classes were difficult, and trying to balance everything ultimately began to take a toll. It went from missing classes here and there to not eating. From not eating to just staying in the bed all day. When I did go to class, it was like everything was in one ear and out the other. Ultimately it reflected in my grades and I got to a really dark place. & I never spoke about it. Nobody knew. Seasonal depression is real and the signs are always there if you pay enough attention. But don’t suffer alone, speak up. Tell somebody. Because suffering in silence kills more in you than anybody would ever know. Someone cares & you are not alone.
