I bought a book today. Has anyone read it and found it helpful?

It might be helpful for close family or partners who don't understand the comlexities of a deep depression, especially when it is so difficult for the depressed person to communicate when things get bad.
The illustrations are good.

There is another book for the people living with someone who is depressed but I thought I would get this one for me first. If I am better, then DH will be fine.

Nab, you could try finding a book called sunbathing in the rain, I can't remember who it is by but it is very good and DH could read it too
