A Friend In The Darkness

Being friends with someone going through depression must be horrible. I mean that. A depressed person is very self-centered. They have no joy and who wants to be around that all the time. A friend who hasn't experienced depression may reach a place where they withdraw because said friend is no fun or maybe because you don't know how to help them. I encourage you to tough it out and don't give up in your sick friend. 

Depression makes you feel isolated, unworthy and unwanted. Having friends back away only adds to these feelings. As hard as it may be on you, I urge you to hang in there. Call, listen, stop by, make plans (over and over if you must), send a card...anything to let you're friend know you care and they are not alone. It may make the difference between life and death and you may not even know it.
