On Depression and Compassion

I have previously written about the connection between creativity and depression when I wrote about my own experience with depression a few years ago. I found that was utterly incapable of being creative or in any way productive during that time.  During that period of my life, it was a good day if I made it out of bed and didn’t spend the entire day weeping. I am usually a happy, extroverted person – most people would probably not think I ever suffer from depression, but as one of those creative types, I can tell you I am as capable of it as anyone else.
