    I so appreciate what you say about doing those small tasks each day. Although I have not had a bout of depression for a decade–mine tends to be situational–I, too, suffered my first bout as a young teen, and it was difficult to climb out of that dark hole.

    The great thing about the book you are writing is that it will show young readers that those holes can be climbed out of, and so you will give them hope, which is the most important thing of all.

    I look forward to reading the novel to come.

    Thank you for sharing your personal experience. I hope your book reaches readers with hope and that this post will remind those of us who write of how we too can push ourselves even when it’s most difficult.

    Thank you so much for this. I hope I will gain the courage to write through this eventually, too.

    Nope, not depressing at all! I like that you reminded me of the power of doing something nice for someone else and that you taught me about a ‘junk friend’. That sounds like one true friend! Thank you!
