Thats a cool way to think about it JulesK. I remember that commercial where this girl was getting followed around constantly by that little depression cloud.
It really does feel like depression is a bully. If depression was a person it would be the kind of person that is always saying stuff to bring you down. "You'll never be good enough to do that" "Look in the mirror, seriously? You were hoping you'd actually be pretty??" "What you're thinking is wrong."
It would have the droning voice of a nag who never has anything good to say about anyone and makes you unsure of everything you try to do.
Fighting back is the only way to do it I think. I figure if I have to take meds or see a therapist, then I will just do it, because its all part of fighting back and not letting that nagging voice of gloom win.
Kudos to you my dear!
