Introduction: Living With Chronic Depression
This is a book(Living With Chronic Depression) addressed to those who suffer from chronic depression, those who love them, and those who treat them. Chronic, unremitting, and endlessly recurring depression are killers. So is the acute, severe depression that often punctuates continuing, underlying, less severe depression. They literally shorten many lives and impoverish even more. Not only a murderer, depression is a thief; it steals the joy of life. As it weighs down with implacable heaviness, it even obliviates Leonard Cohen’s “crack that lets the light get in.” Echoing William Styron’s title of his encounter with depression, it is “darkness visible” as it smothers the light. Heavy, stark, and implacable, it feels unbearable. There’s a whole library of books out there telling you to just change your attitude, wag your tail, and walk on the sunny side of the street.
