Looking for literature to explain what I am going through to my father. If it helps, he is a 65 year old right wing conservative. It's not that he is resistant to the idea that I am dealing with depression, but he has flat out said that he doesn't understand what it is. He claims not to understand it. Wether or not that is true is irrelevant. Our communication is left at "I am depressed". He says "I believe you but I don't get it". Explaining further is very difficult for me. Any suggestions?
