Living with depression is like carrying a backpack full of boulders around with you all day. It weighs you down, saps your energy, and leaves you with little motivation to get out of bed in the morning (much less take a shower, get dressed, and go to work).
We know it’s not always easy to carry that burden. We know that some days, it’s hard to keep up hope — the whole world seems overwhelming. Against us. We know that some days, living with depression might as well be living with leprosy, as friends and family avoid us.
That’s why we’ve developed a wealth of resources to help you to live a better life — even with depression. Our “Living with Depression” guide is here to help you live your life without depression being the defining characteristic of it.
