A friend with depression...

I have a friend dealing with severe depression. It is really disheartening thinking that such a free spirit is trapped in their own mind. How horrible thoughts keep destroying them from the inside out. You try to be supportive but nothing helps, nothing works, and it keeps getting worse. It actually is taking a toll on me, I am a VERY Optimistic person, and it's hard to stay positive when you know nothing YOU do can help them.

In the end they have to help themselves, see professional help, and or take some type of medication. They are finally doing that, which is comforting but even with that they have some "episodes" that keep recurring. As a friend you have to do whatever you can in your power to help them. Which is a fine line to walk, which might even push them deeper into depression. You can only hope, pray, and be positive for the time being. 

Hopefully things get better....
