When you get asked if you’re depressed at work. Well my dad’s dying and at this point there’s nothing else to do but watch him deteriorate and keep him comforable. So uh yes I probably am depressed. No I don’t want to talk about it.
“You see, for me, memories are difficult. Very often, they hurt. A curious thing about grief is the way it takes your entire life, all those foundational years that made you who you are, and makes them so painful to look back upon because of the absence there, that suddenly they’re inaccessible.”
