What many people don't realize about depression is that it isn't gone just because someone is happy and smiling. It is always there just below the surface. Depression is like a lake with a beach. Scoop out a handful of sand and water comes seeping in to fill the hole. The trick to surviving each day is to build up and leave the digging to those who can handle getting wet. Today I've got my plastic bucket and a shovel and I am off to build a castle.
