Sample text

I have found in my professional prac­ tice that depression and manic depression initially distort emotional be­ havior in such subtle ways that most individuals incorporate the changes into their daily lives, and into the image they have o f them­ selves. Often the first reaction is denial that any significant change has taken place in thinking and feeling. ” is a common challenge I hear when prob­ ing a patient’s sad mood. The changes experienced in depression are frequently embraced and even defended as an expected dimension of the self, as merely an unusual emotion driven by unusual experience.

Emotion drains away to be replaced by a vis­ ceral void. Claire Dubois was such a victim. Indeed, her experience was so de­ bilitating that she had come to question the worth of life itself. Claire’s first visit to my office was in the dead of winter— during that week between Christmas and the N ew Year, which is such a bad time for depressed people— in the middle o f a particularly bleak and snowy period. It was the 1970s, when I was Professor o f Psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School. Elliot Parker, Claire’s husband, had tele­ phoned the hospital desperately worried about his wife, who he sus­ pected had tried to kill herself with an overdose of sleeping pills.

Her only explanation to herself was that he had discovered some deep and fatal flaw in her that he would not reveal. T o complicate matters she was pregnant, but after six months of further turmoil she agreed to a divorce. She returned to Montreal, to the family o f her stepsister and to her old job as an editor. There her first child, a daughter, was born. Much saddened by her experience and considering herself a failure, she entered psychoanalysis and her life stabilized. She began writing the first of her several destined-to-be-unpublished plays.
