Depression is as debilitating an illness as the worst virus you can imagine, yet it is often hidden and mis-understood- would you feel guilty and lazy resting and letting the world go by until you felt better?

Thanks for commenting Lisa - rest is so necessary when you are depressed, but I found that the guilt that comes with that quite terrifying at times - cna people rest and not feel guilty about it i wonder?
It's difficult to avoid feeling guilty about resting, and slowing things down, I know. We can't worry though about what others think. If we need something for ourselves we should indulge. I wish more people understood depression.
Thanks duffsmom - guilt is a dreadfully debilitating emotion, and a bad enough feelig when you're not depressed, and I think it can make any sort of depression worse
