Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week

“In a strange way, I had fallen in love with my depression. Dr.
Sterling was right about that. I loved it because I thought it was all
I had. I thought depression was the part of my character that made me
worthwhile. I thought so little of myself, felt that I had such scant
offerings to give to the world, that the one thing that justified my
existence at all was my agony.” —Elizabeth Wurtzel

“I start to think there really is no cure for depression, that

to fight for as long as I live. I wonder if it’s worth it.” — Elizabeth
