We are here for you with as much encouragement we can offer.

My approach to depression involves invoking counteracting metaphors.

Metaphors are tricks we play on ourselves by declaring one thing is something else when obviously it isn't.

One  trick I find helpful is to metaphorically "anchor" myself outside my depression "cave".

I try to remember that I am never helpless confronting Old Man Depression.

Hope this helps even a little.

Do Puns count?
