This was written by Jon Armstrong, who is the husband of Heather Armstrong (  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.
