Ah yeah I get that sho. I don't have a huge sweet tooth so for me, a soda is more for the texture than the taste.

Don't get me wrong though, I can't just sip a club soda with nothing in it.

Sad in that explains her depression and offers hope that not everything is bullshit.

Well, yeah, it ends in a positive note, but I found it sad at the same time because it hits too close to home for me.

Even if I came up with the same conclusion as her.

It just happens that I do suffer of seasonal depression, so every winter, I go thru the same bullshit -- and a major depression episode every so many years.

The only depression i've ever endured was for the first few years of uni and it had spawned from an ended romance and my general lack of self esteem.

whenever I finally made it out of the haze, I came to realize that for me, much of the depression was self-inflicted because I refused to make good decisions in my life and I was just reaping the consequences.

As soon as I figured that out, I was so much happier.

I did not have clinical/chemical imbalance related depression. I was depressed because I made stupid choices and I made stupid choices because I was depressed. At any point, I could have just turned the willpower up a few notches and began climbing out of the shithole I had dug for myself.

(not all depression is this simple though, which fucking sucks for those that have it).

Yeah, my worst depression was triggered while going thru a really bad breakup. I was also suicidal, until I realized living to spite people off was good enough reason to live.

Haven't had a major breakdown like that since then, but I do go thru seasonal depression every winter. It kinda sucks the joy out of everything, but normally once spring rolls in, I'm ok (this year it took longer than usual tho =/)

Have you tried the "real sunlight" lights? They're either quackery or life savers - depends on who you speak to.

Seriously though, if you like sunlight, come stay in Norway during the summers. There's just sun all the time. :roll: Make damn well sure you skedaddle before the winter comes, though. Because then it doesn't stop being night. >_>

Depending on where in the country you're at, of course. Is not so bad here in the capital.
