   Depression is a strange illness. People think it means just being sad, like when your puppy gets run over and killed - but it doesn't., its far more complicated than that.  It is a daily fight with total apathy. Nothing seems worth it. Washing, getting up, food - its all meaningless when one is on a downswing. But when one is on an upswing its hyperactivity all the way. Both states are emotionally exhausting.

  1. Hi Carole,
    The blackest of depressions has been my constant companion for my entire life. It has shaped my world view and inner voice.
    Having said that,I've tried to remain creative and if not positive at least accepting of my steadfast downer sidekick.

    ( and by the way, You ROCK ! )
