Angleterre : What's your experience of depression?

le 28 avril 2016

[The Guardian] Tim Lott’s piece on depression has struck a chord with our readers – we’d like to hear more of your stories for Depression Week.

What does depression feel like?

That’s the question Tim Lott answers today in his opinion piece, written to coincide with Depression Week. He writes:

There is a heavy, leaden feeling in your chest, rather as when someone you love dearly has died; but no one has – except, perhaps, you. You feel acutely alone. It is commonly described as being like viewing the world through a sheet of plate glass; it would be more accurate to say a sheet of thick, semi-opaque ice.

His moving piece has proved popular with our readers, who have shared their own experiences in the comments.
