  1. This is a great collection of depression blogs you’ve got here. I’m very impressed by the selection as there is so much crap to go through when selecting. You’ve really done a good job :)

  2. Thanks for the great resource list here. I have been looking online for blogs depression. I have suffered from this illness all my life and I am trying to come to terms with it. I have been documenting my experience with it in blog DepressionInMotion.com

  3. Here is a new, interesting depression blog written by a very articulate 34 year old woman. She speaks insightfully about her day to day struggles. Maybe some of you will find some comfort in it or find it interesting.

  4. I just started my blog as well on my experience in depression, resulting from over stress in work and life. i found the blogs here very inspiring and helped encourage me in setting up my own blog. Mine talks a bit about what my thoughts and reflections are during this period. Thanks to everyone for helping me through!

  5. Thanks for putting this list out, it introduced me to some great blogs that I hadn’t heard of before…

    I just started blogging about being a mom with severe, chronic depression. All the other “mom” blogs I have read are all about how woooonderful it is to be a mom and how every morning they wake up being so happy to see their little cherubs smiling faces. That has not been my experience, for whatever reason, and I blog about the other side of parenting. I know it comforts me so much to read about others going through depression, so I hope my blog can do the same for other people.

  6. Sometimes when people feel sad, they say they are “depressed.” But depressionis more than just feeling sad. It is a medical illness. Someone with “major” depression has most or all of the symptoms listed in the box below nearly every day for 2 weeks or longer. There is also a “minor” form of depression (called dysthymia) where the symptoms are less severe. Dysthymia can be just as serious because it often includes short periods where the you may feel better, which could make you think there isn’t a problem. Both major and minor depression have the same causes and treatment.

  7. I cam across a good depression post on eblogger the other day. I suffer from depression too and felt I could relate to some of the things on this
