Lately I have grown increasingly frustrated with my husband, because he just doesn't understand how I am feeling. I try my best not to take it out on him, because it's not his fault, but eventually that's what happens anyway. I've googled my heart out trying to find decent information to give him so he can understand and help me out so we can be happy. I've found short web pages, but nothing that really goes into detail about it in terms he can easily understand and put into action. So instead of trying to find websites for him to read, I've decided to write a book. I plan to include tips, suggestions, activities, and ideas on how to help a person living with depression, written from my point of view, as someone with depression. The tips I have found online were written by people who hadn't felt the way we do, and they just don't quite have it. Something is missing, and I plan on filling that gap.
With that said, I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic. I will give credit where credit is due, so if I include your thoughts in the book, I won't claim they were my idea. I especially would like to hear from others that suffer with depression, because we know what we need to feel better. We know what we would like our friends and family to do, even if we don't tell them, so here's your chance!
