"Major depression is a battle with yourself. It is waking up in the morning and not wanting to be where you are."

"...a veil of dark, close fog that follows you and holds you down."

"...moving through a thick, murky pool of noxious liquid, which slows your movements, thoughts and reactions."

"...your mind and heart drown in a thick black oil of hopelessness."

"... like hitting absolute rock bottom and bawling your eyes out because you feel so miserable and don't have the strength to carry on."

"...it immobilizes and exhausts, frightens, anguishes, worries, erases self-esteem..."

"We are just like everyone else-not 'crazy,' 'lazy,' 'manipulative,' 'weak,' or any other of the terrible labels applied by some segments of society. We suffer from an ILLNESS-it IS a DISEASE, just like any physical one. It also hurts us physically, so it's a double torment on us."

"... its pain can be felt all the way through to the soul."

"Nothing feels good. Nothing is enjoyable. All the love in the world cannot fill the gaping void."

"It's not that I don't care about anyone else, but the pain has so engulfed me that I cannot respond to much else."

"It's like drowning in a swimming pool while everyone else enjoys drinks and chatting on the deck."

"...like a vacuum...all hope and belief in a brighter future disappear into it. Everything is slowed..sounds, movement and thinking. There is a disconnection with life and everything around me...it's like being a bubble that muffles and slows the natural processes...a bubble of black mud."

"Lead balloons tied to my limbs make exercise and everyday chores a battle of endurance. Dark thoughts, finding nothing about myself that I like...and suicidal thoughts, when there seems no hope and only darkness. Fighting those off is exhausting."

"I feel like I'm trapped, stuck in this pit of worthlessness."

"...motivation is non-existent. It's an insidious illness, saps a person of life silently...catches people unawares."

"The brain is no less an organ than others are. Depression is not something a person gives himself, wishes upon himself, or invents for sympathy or excuses. It is a REAL disease and has a biological basis. The brain needs medicine to adjust-no different than a heart that needs medicine to function well. We are not 'different'-we just suffer alone and have to battle a formidable enemy."
