Dick Cavett on clinical depression, which he suffers from:
"I know that everyone here knows that feeling when people say to you, “Hey, shape up! Stop thinking only about your troubles. What’s to be depressed about? Go swimming or play tennis and you’ll feel a lot better. Pull up your socks!” And how you, hearing this, would like nothing more than to remove one of those socks and choke them to death with it."

He's spot on. If the magic wand were already in my hand, it might STILL be too far away.

He had some really good points in there. I never thought about why it is that people tend to commit suicide after having a few good days of improvement, but it makes sense.
