And last but not least, Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Under The Duvet, Marian Keyes Is Battling Depression:

Among many other things, depression is so hard because there isn’t something physical that you can point to and say “see, this is the problem”. It’s invisible. Because of that, you’re illness somehow feels less valid. Possibly even more so if some publicly tragic experience wasn’t the trigger.
If it’s deep enough or long enough, you start losing friends, family and career. Everything and everyone important to you start to become bothered and distant. Sometimes because they don’t care or understand. Other times, it’s you that pushes them away. Though at the same time, you want them to stay and help you climb out of your hole.
You blame yourself for becoming such a burden to others. You feel defective for not being able to appreciate the blessings you still have . You spend what little energy you have just trying to get through every little moment. Let alone maintain yourself in a manner that others expect. You feel alone, hopeless and broken.
Living through depression isn’t really living, it’s barely surviving.
