    Hard For Family and Friends to Understand

    I have been feeling down for quite a while.  Its very hard to explain to some the feeling you are having when sometimes you dont understand them yourself.  I think they are just trying to help telling you it will pass or to just snap out of it...This experience has been...

    Depression is living in a body that fights to survive, with a mind that tries to die.
