A little progress is still progress. It gets said all the time but focus on the positives, the small victories and each day will seem a little brighter.
Depression to me is an inability to feel at all, an inability to focus, an inability to see life, an inability to do, I just sit and stare at nothing while I feel dead inside. On the other hand there can also be times when it is hyperactive and the overthinking causes my anxiety to spiral, triggering my depression surrounding my lack of control in my mind.
I know people care about me, I often just don't care about myself enough to 'see' that or certainly feel it. Just like ripples of grace do good and affect people around me in a positive way, my mental health stuggle can have ripples of pain and uncertainty, fear, stress.
I am almost 3 years removed from almost not getting the noose off my neck and life is better, more manageable today, thanks to the doctors, friends, family that have taken the time and love to pour into me since I opened up about my #MentalHealth challenges.
Today, even in the midst of my struggles, heloing others helps me.
Please reach out, do not be embarrassed or ashamed, I am here for all, without prejudice or judgment.
