It's hard explaining depression to someone who's never really been there. And trying to explain... it makes me feel like something's seriously wrong with me, like I'm so much less of a person because I get sucked down into the depression, without there being any good reason for it, no real motivation for being unhappy.
I am feeling a little better now though. I mean, I was feeling depressed anyway and I still am now, but there was other stuff going on that was getting to me. Mike and I had a good talk and worked some of that out. So I'm not happy right now, exactly, but I feel like a lot of weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It's good.
