It's rather "convenient" that I ran into this today. I just lost a couple of people who were important to me & I logged onto DeviantArt to find something to cheer me up. *Sigh*
This is very true, though. I also suffer from depression. Unfortunately, most people really just don't understand. They often say things in an honest effort to help, but they just as often end up saying something that seems to set one back even further.
It bothers me most when people mention medication... Some people I know have it so bad that medicines don't work. Sometimes a prescription just isn't strong enough, while other times, one's body eventually gets used to it & becomes immune to the medicines' effects.
Depression really is a horrible thing & very hard to deal with.
