lonely - no laughter, no joy. Loss of interest in everything. I have been suffering from depression for over 35 years, I hide - from the phone, put blankets over the door windows and lock them, so no one can see inside. Sometimes I will go a week without bathing, sleep in and wear the same clothes for days. I feel like my soul or spirit died and I am an empty shell that breathes. 4/12/2013 at 12:46 AM
