how do you explain...

Depression to someone who has never felt these feelings before? The sense of hopelessness and helplessness and the day stretching on and on an on before you finally can just give up and go to bed. How do you get that across to someone? Someone who cares and WANTS to help, but just doesn't understand... If you know, please tell me.

Then, as suddenly as it comes, it goes. A brisk walk, a meal, a shower, and a good night's sleep and today is a whole brighter new day.

Note to self: remember the four above points on the depression days (which are thankfully just about a yearly event anymore. But when they come - they are bad...)

Happy 4th of July.
