Depression is a mental disorder characterized by negative thoughts and an inability to function normally. It is one thing to read and learn about it but what is it like to suffer from depression? Sharon So shares her story of severe depression and her long battle to recovery. This clip discusses the relationship of depression with family history, chemicals in the body, environmental factors, and various treatments. Writers such as Sylvia Plath give a glimpse into how depression can make you feel completely disconnected from the world around you. A Cage in Freezing Water is Sharon’s own experience and feelings of what depression felt like for her amid its severity and her resilience to survive.
