8. What we all need is good listeners....

and they're few and far between.

Thanks for your post, Steve. It got me thinking about my depression (treatment resistant) and you're right that we are still in the dark ages on this issue. And, most of the shrinks are nothing but pill pushers.

I am glad to see this get more into the sunshine, although I fear we will continue to be pushed into the margins of society and kept closeted.

The internet can be a double-edged sword for depression sufferers: it is an excellent source of valid info if we seek it in the right places, however it can be a disaster if we allow ourselves to become closeted within in it socially, as a means of escape. I'm working on that one now!
