When my boyfriend left me I fell into a deep sadness.
I won’t say I had depression because I don’t think this was a genuine chemical imbalance it was just me feeling all depressed.
There is an immense difference between the more than one, anyone with depression can tell you. In any other time, I stopped taking showers or caring for the house or doing laundry and put on some pounds in the belly and sat in front of the TV a lot. By the time I snapped out of it some months later, and wanted to get back to day to day routine, my apartment was a disaster area. The air quality in my apartment was somewhere in between gym locker and a stinky dog, so I needed to make a change, fast. I bought a couple of those tower-shaped air purifiers that have air filters built into their bases, and turned them both on in the family room. I also left the air purification plans in the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan running, although that didn’t seem to be helping that much. I put my hand up to the air coming out of it, and there was nothing coming out. I pulled the air filter and saw it was completely jammed up with hair and had iced over! When I thought about it, I noticed I had never once changed the cooling filter in the more than 3 years I had lived here… Once the AC started working good, and combined with the air filters, my place started to smell a lot nicer.
