Hey, Erika! Want to know a simple, easy, fool-proof way to deal with depression?

Yeah, me too.

My two main methods are having a wonderful spouse, who loves me lots and makes me want to be the best husband for her (so if I pretend I’m not depressed for long enough, I forget I am); and being, um, just a little crazy.

Complicated, hard, and prone to occasional failure. Ah, well.

Anyway, Erika, I’m glad you posted your story. I appreciate being able to read what other folks are going through. Hang in there.

Husband & retiree. Developer, tech writer, & IT geek. I fill what’s empty, empty what’s full, and scratch where it itches. Occasionally do weird & goofy things.
