A Strange Depression Symptom That Most People Don’t Know – PsyBlog.

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

  1. This makes sense. I know how much I struggle not to call loneliness “hunger” and disappointment “feeling fat”, etc. I wrote about that a few weeks ago: http://carrotsinmycarryon.com/2015/05/02/drowning-the-emotional-babel-fish/

  2. Thanks for sharing. It is an interesting observation.

    It certainly explains why depression can drive people to extremes only to feel something real. Sometimes that means bliss or pain.

    • With depression, there is often no clear line between real and not real with emotions and interpretations of events. Depression darkens one’s entire outlook in ways that are often distorted. With concentration impairment as well, it can all roll together into one ugly fog – Greg

    • All illnesses occur in context, I agree. I haven’t found that clinical depression makes people more realisitic; in fact it seems to make things seesm even worses than it is, and robs a person of the hope, motivation, and creativity to make it any better. – Greg

  4. I like the analogy of the gas gauge! It makes sense to analyse and specify which emotion is being felt. An interesting analysis!
