That’s something that has been a defining feature of my life as an adult. It’s manageable. But it’s real. & it doesn’t take away from my joy or my work or my energy, but coping with depression is something that is part of the everyday way that I live & have lived for as long as I can remember…Depression for me, you can’t distract your way out of it. When you are depressed, it’s like the rest of the world is the mother ship, & you’re out there on a little pod & your line gets cut & you don’t connect with anything. You sort of disappear.
