How Depression Sees It

Just ran across this article called “How Depression Sees It: The Woman Who Gave Birth in a Tree” which offers an authentic description of what it’s like to have depression.  Those of us who do not suffer from this illness have a hard time understanding what it’s like, which is why articles like this are useful to sensitize us to the anguish of those who do, to help us get it.

Another good resource for this is the acclaimed book Darkness Visible: A Memoir of Madness, by William Styron, in which he takes us through his own experience of severe clinical depression.  Both of these make for fascinating reading, and will broaden your mind to gain some insight into what the suffering is really like for people with depression.
