You have to be nice to people even if you don't like them.

I thought babysitting my three year old cousin was gonna be the last time I had to tell that to someone.

The last MH thread was locked and we had basically nowhere to post on here for a long time until Lucem made this thread. It'd be good if this one could remain drama free and therefore unlocked.

give a better example.
I love this because my cat does the exact same thing. He'll come snuggle and sit with me when its obvious that I'm not doing well. He just knows.

I'd say this flareup was handled well by all so we're all good.

Of course I would never say this to my friend, but I can't how I feel. I guess that's the difference. I choose not to say what I feel. I exercise my willpower of my natural desires. Why can't people with depression exercise their willpower over their desire to stay in bed?
Being depressed is like having part of your mind turned off. Your distress at life becomes so acute that your ability to care is kind of switched off as a survival mechanism so you can be alive without flinging yourself off of a building. Long term depression can mean that becomes permanent so that you feel like a ghost staring at your fading soul desperately trying to figure out how it works before it's gone.

This is such a good way to describe it.
