I was diagnosed with sever depression about 6 years ago, but I more than likely have been suffering most of my life. I went through therapy and it really helped me and without medication, I was on the road to a better place. That is until about a year ago. I started feeling those blue feeling coming back strong and I was helpless to stop the slide. And please allow me to say this: UNTREATED DEPRESSION WILL KILL YOU!! Just like cancer or any terminal illness if left unattended. If you wanna die, then do nothing and I’ll bet you the world, this mental illness will kill you. It will kill you one way or the other. Please, PLEASE!! talk to someone or me, I’m no doctor, but I understand and we can get through it together. PLEASE!! And also know this, I suffer everyday single day just like everyone else and I know what you’re going through and what you’re feeling. Let’s beat this beast together.
These are the musings of a depression rewired brain. I’m not a writer nor have I studied writing, I’m simply trying to purge these feelings that have no other outlet. A very special person thought I had a talent for expressing my thoughts through verse, so this is my attempt at that. I’ll try to not be to blue, but depression takes no prisoners so please be patience with me as I get these thoughts out.
My goal in essences, is to help somebody at the same time helping myself. If only one person reads these writings of mine then I’m not happy with that. I need everybody to read these and help me to help you to help other, but that one person reading these is a step in the right direction.
