Depression is a miserable, isolating illness. Many people with depression behave cruelly toward loved ones, and a few avoid relationships altogether, either out of fear or self-loathing. Depression lies to you. It tells you that you need to shut yourself away and ignore the world. It tells you you don’t have depression, that life really is terrible.
