Hunter Matthews has been through this before— even after the doctors, even after the pills, he can still feel the deep dark depression slowly creeping in again.
He tries to shake himself out of it, but that infinite sadness just keeps rolling around his head, his brain attaching to every negative thought… telling him he’s stupid, he’s worthless, and he will feel this way for forever because he deserves it.
Intellectually he knows it’s not how it really is, he’s been over this with everyone countless times, but still, in the moment, right now, it feels true. He sighs, hangs his head, and momentarily lets the depression flood his senses before putting up that mental temporary barrier to slow the tide again.
It made his parents so happy, so relieved, when he told them that he was feeling better… he can’t tell them it’s not true. They’ll be heartbroken.
Exhausted but restless, Hunter tries to go to sleep so he can hopefully wake up and be a normal kid again.
