Explaining Depression To Someone Who Isn’t Depressed

I rarely share work from other people but I think this one is outstanding. It is a must read for those who are willing to take a deep breath and join the conversation about mental illness.

This article originally published on Thought Catalog, shares an incredible and descriptive insight into what it feels like to live with the Black Dog in particular, and having had clinical depression myself, living with darkness for months at a time, I feel this is one of the most accurate and sensitive explanations I have encountered.

May you find revelation from this post, either for yourself or those you love. Thanks for reading,

Miriam E. Miles

This is what depressed people mean when they say they feel devoured by sadness, unable to escape the pain inside their own heads.
