Depression: Through the Pain

You CAN make it through the pain.

Today is a new day!

on May 13, 2013

Welcome to Depression: Through the Pain.  Today is a new day, and I promise that you CAN MAKE IT through depression.  I survived a horrific bout with it 20 years ago, and I’ll be sharing with you ways to survive and even flourish.  You WILL get better.

I’m not with you, so I don’t know how severe your depression is.  However, if you are having trouble functioning or considering suicide (or homicide), GO SEE A DOCTOR.  Make the appointment TODAY, or go to your local emergency room.  There is no reason to be ashamed of seeking help for depression.  Would you be ashamed to have heart trouble treated?  Or cancer?  Or asthma?  It’s the same thing.  The chemicals in your brain are not behaving as they should, and they are incapacitating you or causing harmful thoughts.  GET THE HELP YOU NEED.  There’s no glory in toughing it out without using the available resources.  You need to use whatever you can to battle the tough opponent of depression.

Let’s start filling your toolbox with what you need to conquer this depression.  A good doctor and possibly a prescribed medication are an excellent start.  I’ll be writing again tomorrow, sharing one of the things you can do on your own.  You’ll get better.  I know it’s hard to wait, but healing just takes time.  We’ll work on it together.

Blessings,  Elizabeth

  1. I survived…and it left it’s scars, and it’s ghosts I still battle. But, I made it. Nice to see someone out there willing to put out the healing, helping vibes.

      Thanks, Manda! “Ghosts” is a good way of putting it. After survival of an extreme attack, there are battle scars and sometimes ghosts to deal with. But nothing like the onslaught. And you are stronger for having made it to the other side. You’re a welcome addition! Elizabeth
