This was written by Jon Armstrong, who is the husband of Heather Armstrong (www.dooce.com).  Heather has chronic depression, and this is what he wrote about his perspective on living with someone who has it.

I think everyone should read this, because he has a lot of important things to say about loved ones who are depressed.  And everyone knows someone who has/has had/or will have depression at some point in their lives.

And I think that this is a fair assessment of what it would be like to live with me.  I, too, have chronic depression and anxiety, and from my point of view, he’s done a great job of expressing what I think it would be like.  Read it, and pass it on.
