For some of us it’s situational and for others it’s a chemical imbalance. For some it’s triggered by screaming people in our faces, reminding us of childhood abuse and for others it’s the long hot shower turned cold because we can’t fathom how we’re going to finish the day. For some, bi-polar disorder, PTSD, Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Mania ….. showing up to work hoping you can make it until noon so you can drive around the block and sit at the corner and cry it out or hell, not even making it out of bed on a Tuesday. Tuesday’s are hard.
Truth. Depression you DO NOT OWN ME. I will refuse to allow you to take me down. I will get help. I will see my therapist. I will take my medication. I will eat right. I will exercise. I will tell the people I love the most when I am hurting instead of isolating. I will REFUSE, do you hear me now, I will REFUSE TO TAKE THIS LYING DOWN.
I will write a book about you. How you tried to kill me. And I will save others because if I am here for good …. SO ARE THEY.
Believe. Hard. For whatever reason. Depression ? @*(# ….. WE ARE HERE TO STAY!
