Vlog – How it Feels to Live With the Black Dog

My latest video discusses just how depression actually feels and why it is so, so far away from merely feeling sad or miserable. Imagine trying to ask someone that is steaming drunk to act stone cold sober and you may get some idea of how it feels for a severely depressed person to be told to act happy. I hope you like it.

  1. Hi Matthew, I can totally relate to this! It is really hard describing how depression feels especially when you are not actually going through it at the time. All I know is that I wanted to get out of it, but just couldn’t. I didn’t want to see anyone, do anything or be bothered at all. I know some people find that hard to imagine, but you have articulated it really well. 🙂

    1. Thank you Judy. I’m glad it resonates. It’s such a difficult thing to go through and I want to do what I can to help people to understand it, both those that struggle with it and also those that care for them.
