Cynthia W. Lubow: What It’s Like Inside a Depressed Person’s Head

“A major depressive episode can alter not only a person’s mood and sense of belonging but also his or her reality.”

“Major depression feels like intense pain that can’t be identified in any particular part of the body. The most (normally) pleasant and comforting touch can feel painful to the point of tears. People seem far away—on the other side of a glass bubble. No one seems to understand or care, and people seem insincere. Depression is utterly isolating.”
