    The Light Returns

    Each night I watch the sun disappear
    As the light fades I become filled with fear
    Will I ever be able to see the beauty again
    I’m curled on the floor my mind screaming when, when, when
    The cold floor causes my body to shake like a leaf in the fall wind
    I want to move but the darkness has me pinned
    I used to have strength to stand tall again
    Right now I feel so close to the absolute end
    I take a deep breath watching my chest rise and fall
    Stand tall, stand tall, stand tall I hear someone call
    I have endured what feels like an eternity of darkness
    But now the light begins to seep in and I can once again see my purpose
    It’s as if my eyes are open for the first time
    I lost track of my path because I had become blind
    I look up now and the light fills my mind body and soul
    With the love of others I’ve been pulled out of the black hole
    Before darkness comes again
    I take some light and store it in a sacred bin
    I’m reminded that the darkness doesn’t have to erase my hope
    Instead it can clean it with a simple bar of soap
    So I don’t wait for the bitter end to arrive
    I look at my my life moving forward walking with a tall confident stride

    Inside the darkness #Depression #AFightWorthFinishing #darkness #Poetry

    I feel broken, burnt, and defeated
    It’s like something I can’t get a second of relief from

    It’s as if I’m deep in a well and the rope is 4 feet too short
    Is it me or has my mind taken reality and begun to distort

    Not long ago I saw light and hope
    I sit here now almost pleading for a bag of dope

    The exit door is lit up like a Christmas tree
    I feel walking thru there is the only way to feel free

    But still I wake up each day and pray to god for the sun to rise so that I can see thru the darkness that’s so intense I can’t even see my feet
    How do I move forward when I can’t see my next step on this jagged concrete?

    How do I keep believing when I feel torn into a million little pieces?
    I spend all of my energy trying to piece them back together but my frustration only increases

    Is there a way out of this madness
    I no longer feel anything inside not even sadness

    I want to hold on for the sake of others
    But not finding it in myself to do it for me has me losing sight of the effect on my sisters and brothers

    I no longer feel that I qualify as sane
    Like a dark monster took over my brain

    The challenge begins #Battle #AFightWorthFinishing #Realisation #Support

    Today was a chat. Not any kind of random chat where you giggle at the most silliest of moments but a reality check chat. It was the C talk! I didn't feel it was going to go well.... Well why would it as I knew just from what the topic was it was going to be horrible. I have so much support handed to me which is great to battle the C I need a army but at times I wish I could single handle the C on it's on. I'm very lucky! The question is........ Why do I wish to fight this alone? Why do I push those closest away? Why does my heart feel it is about to jump and leap onto my lap?


    Kicking my ass back into self love.

    Im doing something I've been putting off due to negativity. Im starting to take care of myself in every which way. Like it or not. Im forcing myself to smile and be happy with life's issues and whatever bullshit gets thrown at me. Im tired of letting the negativity get the best of me. Its my turn to take back what belongs to me. I deserve to be happy and I'm getting that back on my own. #selflovemeanstome #EnoughIsEnough #Happiness #makingmyownhappiness #AFightWorthFinishing

    For anyone struggling #CheckInWithMe

    This is an image from a page in the book I am currently reading. It’s a lonely summer evening for me and I needed to hear these words more than ever at this moment. Hope it helps you too. #Depression #Anxiety #Dysautonomia #MentalHealth #BipolarDepression #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #AnorexiaNervosa #AFightWorthFinishing

    I loved this one #Brainvsbody #Bipolrdisorder #AFightWorthFinishing #PhysicalTherapy

    . “Your body and your mind sort of become separate. For example, when you’re in a depressive episode and can’t get out of bed, your brain screams at you, trying to force you to get up, but your body doesn’t listen. Then, during a manic episode, your body screams at you to let it rest, but your brain’s all, ‘No. We gotta finish rearranging your room by one in the morning so we have time to finish a hardcover notebook and read two novels before the sun shows up.’” — Reinrose B.


    TMS #Depression #Hope #AFightWorthFinishing

    Please take the time to look into this as it saved my life. I no longer suffer from
    Chronic depression as I used to...now when there are those moments of sadness I usually bounce back within a day or so! Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS (also referred to as “repetitive TMS”) is a localized, non-invasive outpatient procedure in which magnetic energy is directed towards specific areas of the patient’s brain. TMS is a new treatment intervention, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients suffering from depression and whose symptoms have not improved adequately with antidepressant medications and psychotherapy.
