What is depression?

it’s a word that I am sure is very familiar to you. We use it a lot don’t we. Isn’t it curious then that we know so little about what this word means.

It makes some pretty powerful reading.

Or like dreaming things that seem always better than your reality.
Or knowing that you could have made a better choice.
Or having a birthday party all by yourself.” Read more
