I am going to assume that you have in place a program to deal with the biochemical aspects of your depression. Without that, dealing with the depression is possible but as you probably know, it can be very difficult. Hopefully by now, the fog of depression has begun to lift for you.

The Cloud of Unknowing

The year is 1370. English mysticism is in full flower. At the same time the populous is being ravaged by the bubonic plague and Europe is suffering through The Hundred Years War. Social unrest is everywhere as modern nations are being painfully birthed. The Papacy is about to split, Medieval Christendom is finally at its ebb and if you stand on your tiptoes, you can see the Renaissance on the horizon.
