David Nail has provided what is probably the most enlightening description I’ve ever heard of what it’s like to suffer from depression.
“The only way I’ve ever known how to explain it is that every day I would wake up … I feel like everybody starts at a zero and different things can take you up and down,” he explained. “I started out in the negative. It was a chore just to get to zero and so many days … I could never. … If I got to 10, it was just for a second.”
