what is depression?

抑郁症是什么?

Depression has been part of my journey for a very long time. Long before I knew what to call it, there it was walking with me, side by side. There it was, holding my hand, invading my thoughts, causing me to sleep longer, eat more and rarely smile whenever I spent time alone with myself. I learned to dance the dance, to smile for my friends, for my parents, for the audience, for the camera. I smiled; all the while inside a hurricane was sweeping me into an ocean of darkness.


—Terrie M. Williams, a celebrity publicist who has represented stars from Eddie Murphy to Chris Rock

从很久以前,抑郁症就成为我生命旅程的一部分了。早在我知道它叫什么之前,它就已经和我并肩而行,握住我的手,入侵我的思想,使我睡得更久,吃得更多,即使是在独处的时候,笑容也愈加稀少。我学会跳舞,向我朋友、父母、观众及照相机微笑。我笑着,但内心的飓风将我卷入黑暗的海洋。

-------特里•M•威廉姆斯,明星公关,为艾迪•墨菲、克里斯•洛克等明星担任经纪人

 

It creeps up on you, like a snake slithering in the grass, silent but deadly. One minute everything's fine, you're laughing with your friends, or singing along to your favorite tune, and the next the pillows are stained with your tears and the giant sitting on your chest just won't leave you alone.

它像草丛里划过的蛇一样悄悄接近你,无声确致命。上一分钟还一切安好,你和朋友们大声欢笑,和着你最喜欢的旋律,下一分钟已泪染枕巾,那个巨怪压在你的胸口始终不肯离去。


For a time I retreated from social contact and preferred to spend time alone in my room, wallowing in my own grief. There were physical symptoms; a tightening of my chest and difficulty breathing. During this time, all the cursory words of well-wishes and platitudes from close friends and loved ones did nothing for me. They meant well, of course, but I was lost in my own planet of hopelessness and self-pity.

—Paul John Caña, the managing editor of Lifestyle Asia magazine

有一段时间,我宁愿自己一个人呆在房间里,远离社交,独自吞咽自己的痛苦。身体上也有一些症状显现出来:胸闷,喘不过气。在这段时间里,亲朋好友潦草的祝福和陈词滥调对我起不了任何作用。他们的出发点当然是好的,只是我已经迷失在了自己绝望和自怨自艾的世界里。


----保罗.约翰.卡纳 《亚洲生活》杂志总编辑

The opposite of depression is not happiness, as I was not unhappy. It's the "vitality" on the other side of the pole. My body was trapped by the medical condition, so was my life. It drained my energy, and sucked my life.

—Zhu Yi, executive editor of Global Premier magazine

抑郁症的反义词不是“快乐”,就像我并没有不快乐。抑郁症的反义词是“活力”。我的身体被疾病困住了,就如同我的生活。它榨干了我的精力,抽空了我的生活。
——朱熠,《环球首映》杂志执行主编
