5.0 out of 5 stars A real account, 25 April 2012
I found Mark's account of depression to be a real eye opener. As a word easily branded about these days and fobbed off as 'a bit down', it must have been such a hard battle. I believe there is so much more research to be done with respect to the physical condition that parallels the mental. I had no idea of the physical side of the illness and I guess I'm very lucky not to have been so low mentally, that I just can't do anything. I would love to have read a bit more about how your wife coped and just how close to the edge she found herself. How awful to watch the man you love deteriorate so dramatically in a relatively short period of time. If you have an interest in 'depression' read this book.
