You do have people that care about you but they don't understand to the disease. I've gone through it with family and still do occasionally.
Don't get them angry, get them educated. Key in Ivan Goldberg on Google and go to his site. He's got a list on things to say and not to say to people suffering from depression.
My memory is shot, I can't remember the name of William Styron's book about his depression. It's in the book recommendation list above.
It's a very short book and I've asked friends to read it, if they would, to understand this disease. They don't harrass me anymore.
