Read from March 27 to April 08, 2011

I highly recommend this to people either struggling with depression, as I have, or to people who know depressives. It's a great insight to see into a very dark cave that depression is. To me it's like a reverse Plato's cave--where the cave is dark and on the wall there are shadows/slivers of light and I want to lift my hand to snatch the light but can't seem to move or understand why I'm in the cave to begin with.

This is also a great book for creative souls who struggle with depression. It lifts, depending on the depth of the cave you're in, the horror a bit in knowing you're not the only one in the cave though you can't see, hear, smell, or touch the others.
