I believe in educating people about my illness.  That way they know what is happening and hopefully I can help them to help and support me.  If someone must ask me what depression feels like, this is how I'll explain it:


* Do you know that Sunday afternoon feeling?  You've had a good lunch and now all you want to do is lie down and sleep?  But just as you doze off, your phone rings.  You're too tired to answer, you want to sleep. Times that feeling by at least ten or so and you may begin to understand what depression feels like.  (At this point I'll begin to explain about the tiredness, the lack of interest etc, etc, etc.)
