I myself have been dealing with it -- in various levels of intensity -- for over a decade. It's been difficult, but fortunately, I've reached a point where I can go weeks and even months without having a depressive episode. I'm proud of myself for mustering through the terrible years, where every day was a challenge, and reaching a point where I'm not scared anymore. Relapses can happen, but I know I can get through them. If you or someone you know is suffering, please know that it can get better. You are strong and you can battle this out.
I did my nails to reflect Depression Awareness's colour which is green. I used silver on my ring fingers as a way to show a "silver lining" -- that the cloud of depression doesn't have to take over one's life, and there will be happy days.
