My favorite bit: "Whether [depression is] a “good” thing or a “bad” thing, I cannot pretend to know, but it exists and it can kill you dead."

It's a quick read and worthy of your time whether you the patient or the help. It also gives such clear words to the physical feeling. Actually, perhaps it is the physical feeling. The feeling of it all gets so tangled it's often hard to figure out what's what.

Which is exactly why you should, indeed: Get help. Don’t think. Get help.
