Agreed. I’m just now, a little bit each day coming out of the worst bout of depression yet. I allowed myself to sleep and rest when my body told me to but the rest of the time I forced myself through it, set goals and reached them, lived up to my responsibilities. I’m not sure I would have survived it if I didn’t. It’s a total inner struggle though.
