I Hear Exercise Helps!  
While I am never glad that my friends are also experiencing depression, I am grateful that we can discuss it and not feel so isolated and alone. It is good to know people who understand what it's like. I try not to talk about it much because if you haven't experienced it I think it's human nature to try to fix it with suggestions and so on. What is most helpful is a simple expression of caring because it's not something that is easy to treat and we explore those options already. I am fine with a simple {hug} even.

Yes yes yes.
I do try to talk about it though, because it's a physical (brain chemistry) problem, and it can happen to anyone under the right stimuli or with the "wrong" genetics, and I hate that it's seen as a moral failing.
