It’s only when you have suffered from it yourself that you understand: with depression, you just can’t. You can’t “just get on with it.” There are days when you are against an invisible wall, and all you can do is stare blankly into space. Or cry. Or cocoon yourself in a duvet.

You are filled with a total, immovable weight, sunk deep into your chest and stomach, dragging your head down to your chest.
