Me personally, I don't have any experience of depression, but I've done my research and found someone who has encountered it. I've read this person's point of view on it. He/She explained that you really can't understand if you've never suffered from it. It's frightening. And the person compared depression to a black dog. And stated, "at times the dog will attack, overwhelm, have you pinned down on the ground ripping at your heart and throat, and you tame the dog with your treatment, but the dog never dies and that's the fear every single day of it attacking again.
