My diagnosis is Major Depression, Recurrent, Severe without Psychotic Features. My medication gives me dry mouth. I compensate for that by always having a bottle of water nearby. This in turn helps ensure I remain properly hydrated. Remaining properly hydrated (most of us don’t) is a good thing. I’ve become much more tolerant of others who don’t seem that "together". From my personal experience, any struggle a person engages in and prevails against, or at least is able to successfully manage, makes that person not only stronger, but a better person. (I’d use the maxim here: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger.", except that may not a good thing to tell someone who is severely depressed and suicidal…) That pretty much sums it up.
