  1. I can only relate my insights about the metaphorical nature of being at "rock bottom" . When someone hits rock bottom there is only direction that you can possibly go and that of course is up. Metaphorically climbing becomes easier if excess emotional baggage is let go. The idea is to be clever with powerful metaphors or as I like to call them: CLEVERFUL MEDaphors. Old Man Depression plays the most awful tricks on our psyches so my feeling is we should play some tricks right back. Maybe this can help a little. Oscar
  2. Welcome new friend. I can only tell you what has been helpful for me. I experience depression as a natural formation / resource. We are all metaphorically empty but getting lost and trapped within ourselves is the debilitating problem of depression. I truly believe we are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. We can counteract the effects of depression with clever and powerful metaphors. Maybe this can help a little. Hope you find a supportive home here.

  4. We are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression. I believe we can counteract the debilitating effects of depression with clever and powerful metaphors. The ice you are afraid of falling into is of course metaphorical. Perhaps you are telling yourself to stay off the "ice" and stay on a "solid foundation". Food for thought?

  13. I read your post and know how awful depression can be. I can only try to offer a little insight regarding the dark, dark hole you mentioned. Of course the hole is metaphorical. I believe you are telling yourself that you need light to counteract the darkness. Also climbing out of a hole is easier when letting go of weighted emotional baggage. To me depression is a natural formation / resource. We are never helpless confronting Old Man Depression and powerful and clever metaphors are the way out of the debilitating effects of depression. You are not wasting our time and I hope this can help even a little. Oscar
