You know that procrastination doesn't automatically = depression though. Now every person on tumblr who experiences demotivation or apathy is going to assume they need to seek help for an illness they most likely don't have.
You’re right little anon (though I’m confused as to why people choose to use anon just to say things…), procrastination and depression are indeed two different things. I didn’t mean to imply that they’re the same. However, in the context of the text post, you physically can’t bring yourself to do something, no matter how important it is. That’s the key point
I dealt with depression for two years while I was in the military, and didn’t realize what it was until years after I was released (I still do, but not nearly to the same extent). I knew that I should be eating. I knew that I should be going to classes. I knew that if I didn’t do a lot of things, my military career would end. But I couldn’t get out of bed. My now wife would band on my door for an hour, and I’d just ignore her, unable to get out of bed just to answer the door. This is the type of behaviour I feel like the post was referring to.
Obviously, there are a lot of signs/symptoms of depression, but demotivation and apathy, as you put it, are two of the biggest ones. And you know what, even if I had the power to change the way tumblrites think (with my grand total of 19 followers), I’d rather people seek help for something they might not have, then suffer in silence and possibly ruin their lives like I did.
