Depression takes over your mind, body, and soul and holds you hostage in this deep dark place you can’t see your way out of. It controls your every move, thought, and actions. Medications helps, sometimes, but time and time again it inches its way back into your life. 

I try to deny its’ destructive powers over me. I like to think I am stronger than this so called chemical imbalance. Somehow I always feel it’s my fault I’m depressed. If I try harder to deal with whatever it is that is depressing me, I would be O. K. The problem is I truly don’t have a thing to be depressed about. 

Today is a new day. I will make the best of whatever God has in store for me. I am so thankful for my family and friends who loves me just the way I am.  Love you all.

    Oh my sweet Mary, I wish I could give you a hug. Being depressed is never your fault. It can be a monster, though. I have dealt with the monster for a couple years now, off and on. I find writing helps tremendously. It doesn’t solve our problems, but it lets your brain rest and sort out issues. It is quite amazing, really. I’m so glad you’re writing. Keep it up. I’m always here for you. I hope you know that.
    Much Much love!
