Depression Feels Like…

This comes from a friend of mine who is also in the throws of Depression.  I think she described Depression perfectly.  This is how I feel right now and the last few days:

“Depression feels like a dementor is always following me around.”

**********
For those that have not watched or read the Harry Potter Series, A dementor is (in the image above):

Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them… Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself… soulless and evil. You will be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life.
