Dear A. A. Melyngoch and Wants to Understand,

Melyngoch, thank you for your clear description of what it's like to be depressed. I've been there (I'm still there, most days), myself, but would never be able to express it so well.

Wants to Understand, thank you so much for making the effort to understand what it's like to be depressed. So many people think they understand, and don't, and wind up hurting their depressive friends very, very badly.
