You see her curled up on her bed in a fetal position. Her sobs can be heard from the next room. Beside her bed she has a bottle of pills. She debates on whether to take them or not. For days now she has been locked up in her room, not eating nor sleeping. You are looking at a picture of what depression is. It really is hard to describe it in words. It is even harder for a person that doesn’t have depression to understand. But that is exactly what the depressive person wants; someone to understand them.
