It's wanting to be alone, but not wanting to be lonely. It's feeling everything at once then feeling paralyzing numb.”

  • "When a depressed person shrinks away from your touch it does not mean she is rejecting you. Rather she is protecting you from the foul, destructive evil which she believes is the essence of her being and which she believes can injure you."
  • "She says she's fine but she's going insane. She says she feels good but she's in a lot of pain. She says it's nothing but it's really a lot. she says she's okay. But really she's not." 
  • "That's the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it's impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key."
