Subject: RE: BS: sliding into a depression
To Guest: I agree that exercise, dragging yourself out of the chair and doing something, anything, is good medicine. Dogs are a great help in this...if you don't have one maybe you could borrow a friend's who need exercising... Also, resist the urge to isolate. Sometimes just talking to someone on the phone can be refreshing. Reach out, as you have done here, in all directions.



To Kendall...Sorry to hear of your own problem, Kendall. First off, have faith that your voice will return...it requires psychic energy to produce any act of creativity, and that is in short supply when depression takes a grip. In the meantime, try to focus on the fact that your essential self is not about any one part of yourself...you shape your voice, not the other way around. You have a much needed voice right here, for instance, that is still clear and strong.
