Depression steals lives, takes a happy healthy person and leaves them in total despair. Family and friends are unable to understand, and the sufferer is unable to explain.
Itís been ten days, each day you have strived to make it over the first mountain, only to see it was not the only one. Each morning you awake to find that same peak needing to be climbed again. Your optimism is little more than the morning dew, leaving you with despair, dread and fear, as your only companions.
Try to think how you are going to feel on day eleven, what about day fifteen? It is highly probable that sometime within the following days you will begin to wonder what the point of all is. Should you even bother getting out of bed? How energised are you going to be to start your day when it begins like this?
The realisation that you are never going to get home will follow shortly after. You may as well get used to being here. It is that realisation that allows you to give in.
What if the realisation itself is false, what if you could go home if you just try once more.
Those of us who suffer from depression donít have endless hills to climb, thatís true. What we do have however is the overwhelming feeling of complete despair and isolation. There is also no feeling of hope, no visions of light at the end of the tunnel, there is nothing but the feeling that today is just as bad as yesterday and tomorrow will be the same and there is absolutely no way out.
But there is a way out..... I made it out and so can you or your loved one
