I have come to realize that dealing with depression is similar to being sucked into a riptide. No matter how hard you try, no matter how hard you may thrash you are not escaping that way. The problem with depression is that you can get sucked into a dark and sightless pit of despair before you even realize it. your only hope is that someone will pull you out before you exhaust yourself. I hope help is coming because I’m getting pretty tired.
