For me, Depression is a state of mind - a seclusion, a struggle within the mind, that goes completely opposite to the body. Depression is a dark place in the soul, like the attic of a house, that stores all kinds of secrets, fetishes, taboo thoughts, sufferings. Depression is a stream of negative energy that exists alongside all other energies within the body yet without it, all other energies seem all the less bright, less radiant. Just like sweat, depression is stinky and disgusting but is necessary to the body as it brings out all the unwanted substances out of the body. If not cleaned away clear enough, one will stink in his/her own sweat/depression. It is the dangerous flow of thoughts that lies within Depression that makes one so easily fall back into it over and over. So one must have strict self-conduct in order to let Depression do its duties and drain out all negative energies but not let it affect your life. 

My depression soundtracks:
- A Single Man
- The Hours
