Well written! I am a 60 year old woman who has dealt with the diagnosis of clinical depression for 20 years. Some days I win; some days not so much. However, I have people who love me and believe me and believe that the condition is REAL and as valid as my arthritic right hip.
If you need a person to talk to — I am willing to be that person. To you, to anyone who needs to talk about it. I have experienced it, I know it to be real.
