Q #22

I think this is a hard one to explain to anyone that hasn't experienced mental health problems (or, read The Bell Jar) but living with depression, or something like that, is like you're constantly waiting for the jar to descend on you again and trap you in a vacuum. When I first read this book I was seventeen, and struggling a lot with my depression - it is a very weird sensation to read a book written almost thirty years before you were born, in a very different environment to you own, and have them sum up exactly how you're feeling, and perfectly and succinctly, too.
