      These are great tips, however, the distorted thought patterns that accompany depression usually leave the person without the ability to differentiate between fact and reality. The lack of hope that accompanies depression is so pervasive that it is impossible to see any good in the world. It is like a fog that settles in on the brain, blocking out the view of the sun. After a while, the person begins to believe that there is no longer any sun, and that the world everywhere is covered with fog.
