So important to point out this connection! Almost exactly a year ago, a dear friend of mine was struggling with depression so severe he became suicidal. I missed most of the signs. He kept telling me how fatigued he was. I didn’t get that his fatigue was a symptom of depression.

He’s OK now, but it was a close call.

It’s good to think about this and talk about it.
