I found a fabulous story on-line written by an artist called Allie and called Adventures in Depression. Allie doesn’t start with the traditional: Once upon a time… instead she opens with, “Some people have a legitimate reason to feel depressed, but not me. I just woke up one day feeling sad and helpless for absolutely no reason.”
