I’ve been depressed for 25 years. At the beginning, I believed that there was a cure. If not a cure, at least effective treatment.
For a lot of people, this may be the case. Many people, at the least, find relief. Some people manage to lead a semi-“normal” life.
What even is a normal life?! Many people manage to function. It never even occurred to me that this wouldn’t be the case for me.
