Here is a PowerPoint slide I made a while ago that hopefully will bring a smile (what's that, you ask?) to people suffering from SEVERE depression. I know that I smile whenever I re-read these jokes! I've read that if you can laugh at yourself with what you're dealing with, you can control what you're facing.

A little bit about me...

I've had depression my whole life. I'm now 61 years old. First my depression was mild, then it progressed to moderate, and now it is severe. I am on Social Security disability and cannot work. I attempted suicide once. Thankfully I wasn't successful at it. I have passive suicidal thoughts almost on a daily basis. I have all of the symptoms of clinical depression. I have treatment-resistant depression. I've tried all of the SSRIs and none of them have helped me. I've tried 15 sessions of ECT (electro-convulsive therapy) and that didn't work. I've tried 36 sessions of rTMS (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation) and that also didn't work. I wish that people who don't have depression could understand what it's like to have it. My marriage of 26 years ended in divorce because my family could no longer be a caregiver to me. It is a horrible, horrible illness, but I guess everyone on this forum knows that.
