I believe most of us know about depression, having experienced it in varying degrees as we grow up and grow older. I have had the clinical symptoms of clinical depression since I was 15 years old. That’s going on forty years now. At first, and for many years, I didn’t understand that the way I felt was so deeply altering and guiding my path through life. I’m just coming out of what they call a major depressive episode… and I want to share as much as I can in hopes it may be able to help others.
