Depression drives a victim impotent. For years and years and years. Have you ever asked yourself how much you've had to sacrifice in order to deal with your depression? How many economic opportunities passed you buy? How many social events and opportunities were hindered by grief? How many academic problems were created? Did you reach where you wanted to go in your academic career or were you blocked by your depression? How many career paths were shot down because of this constant sickness? I've been in a constant struggle against chronic depression for over 16 years now. My potential was spent and now I struggle to complete the most basic processes. My vocabulary and (it seems) my IQ has been taken by the sickness. It's time I face up to reality and admit defeat. It's won, completely. No need to respond. I shan't be returning to this forum for sometime. James.
