Pebble in the Road - Fight the Reaper

For those of you that don’t understand about the experience of depression, I have two websites that might help folks get a grip on it.  

The first is Will O’Neil’s Actual Sunlight. It is a fictional narrative game about the experience of living and trying to exist in a depressive state.  

Another expression of the experience is an old school HTML website called Depression Quest. 

It is an interactive experience about living with depression.

What am I talking about this? 

In this episode, a word or two about Heather Armstrong and a few resources that might help you understand depression a little bit more and a resource or two to help some of you stay on this side of the life fence.

If you need support contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988 or 1-800-273-8255, the Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386 or text “START” to 741-741.
