Isn’t the internet wonderful? I started out looking for pictures of [del]hairy men fucking other hairy men[/del] http://i.imgur.com/ris7eyj.gif"]fuzzy kittens and ended up finding something important & useful*.
For those of us who have been there, the comic expresses something that is very often hard to put into words. To those who have never dealt with these types of feelings, and I hope you never do, the comic might help you better understand what others are going though.
Easter is a fine time to post this. Holidays are filled with all the things we “should” be doing but the darkness of Depression robs us of those things. If it helps one person understand why their loved one is acting the way they are it’s done good.
The comic is, indeed, a really useful resource. I struggle to understand the condition (I don’t have it, but my spouse does), and it is really difficult to get if you’re not subject to it.
Foggy, I just hate seeing how often you post about suicide. I wish there were something constructive I could say. It is a terrible equation: the pain of the person who would commit suicide vs. the pain of the people who love him / her (and the emergency personnel who don’t have a personal stake but still feel the pain). I’m sorry you have to suffer to keep all those people from suffering. I hope things get better.
Edit: and in my own darker moments: Sometimes I think… (non-suicide depression comic from the site)
