Karen, thank you so very much for so magnificently describing depression which so many of us, too, are afflicted. I relate, especially, to the no-energy part, and always wanting to be alone, and never knowing exactly what I want to eat. My living environment is a disaster because I choose to be here all day on my computer instead — it’s easier, and here I can communicate, and “be with the world.” Thank you. Your writing is superb!! Keep writing!! You have a tremendous future as a wonderful writer!! Congratulations!!
