what do you do/say when you're in the middle of a depressive phase and there are nice people that want to talk to you?
and you don't have myriad exciting topics to pluck out of nowhere because you're lacking the enthusiasm for, like, anything?
"how's it going, [your name here]?"
"...I don't know. I've been depressed, mostly. really taken a turn for the worst."
"*eyebrows raised, slightly dumbfounded*."
"yeah, so there's that. and...yeah! I mean, yeah, I'm taking some new medication. for the bad feelings."
"oh. tell me about...the medication."
"don't know if it'll work, lol!"
"*mouth opened slightly, no sound coming out*."
