Hello world!

Welcome to depressionscollateraldamage.  Through this blog, we hope to offer thoughts of reflection and encouragement to the hidden victims of depression: those who live with and care for depressed people.

Both of us have been married to husbands who have been depressed much, if not most, of their lives.  We’ve spent a great deal of our time over the last few years writing two books for people in similar situations, and talking with people about how they can take care of themselves when someone they love is depressed.

If you’re in the same boat, you might want to check out “Let Me Sow Light: Living With a Depressed Spouse” (ACTA Publications, 2008) and “Dancing in the Dark: How to Take Care of Yourself When Someone You Love is Depressed” (Central Recovery Press, 2012), both available on Amazon.  Check back here often for new posts, and to post your own thoughts and experiences.

And in the meantime, do something for yourself today.  Chances are, if you care for a depressed person, you spend a whole lot of your time taking care of someone else.
