Depression is a strange and unpredictable affliction.
I have a friend who has been depressed since he was sixteen years old and one day settled into a moderate stage of depression he could live with most of the time.
He once told me of a time when he was in major depression and, even with antidepressants, was having a difficult time functioning. One evening, he was watching the 5:30 evening news by himself, deep in depression, when for no apparent reason, the depression suddenly lifted, and the darkness was replaced by light. It startled him.
The point of my telling this story is to never give up – never, ever give up. Just when you least expect it, your depression could lift like the curtain of a movie screen, and the dark of the night within you replaced by the light of a glorious day. Take heart. It could happen to you.
