|thank you all for your expressions of concern...i am not actually in a depression right now, just skirting the edges. in full mode i don't write much, i read others work and feel inadequate but can never seem to put two words together. depression is a part of my life that i have learned to live with but never to totally conquer but the periods have grown farther apart and are of lesser degree than they were before authorsden. sometimes just having an interest that pulls one out of oneself is enough to fight off the demons.|

|Many of us have visited the pit, I'm so sorry Sue and I hope your visit will be a short one. Go outside and look at the beauty of the day, I know you don't feel like it but force yourself to do something postitive to break the hold of depression, even if just a little. Sending you a hug.|

|you have explored depression with very powerful images and emotions ... sometimes, all we can do is to fight against being sucked up into that black hole or to seek help from outside its grasp before it overwhelms us ...|

|Sue, I know this abyss and I share your sentiments on the absolute inadequacy of the word "depression." True (clinical) depression is vastly misunderstood. Dawn|

|Sue, you describe it perfectly! As terrible as the abyss is, I often wonder what causes the turn around. I'd love to bottle just what it is for someone that makes them come back out of the coma like existence to take up their normal routine. With me it was God, and I've never been there since that was about 15 years ago.Keep writing this is a fantastic piece!|

Don't stop walking
