A couple of years ago, I experienced my lowest point so far. When I finally climbed out of this hole, I asked myself: What can I do that something like that doesn’t happen to me again? After my experience from the second half of last year and the time it took me (probably still takes me) to recover, I am now at a point where I want to ask that question again. That is why tragic stories about depression hit a nerve. It is also why I want to understand more about depression, its roots, symptoms, and how to become more resilient.
