If only I had come across this kind of piece during the five years I lost to depression, Nick Wignall, I have no doubt a little lightbulb would have gone on in my head and your words would have brought me much relief and food for thought.

Alas, reduced financial means completely precluded access to the kind of therapy that could have helped (urgh, American health care) so I was left to figure it all out by myself, and I eventually reached the same conclusions your piece outlines.

This piece is the very definition of writing as service.

Thank you so very, very much, Nick.
