Depression

Having Bipolar I have dealt with depression many times. It is loaded with worthlessness, lots of tears and irritability. The days fly by and you have no interest in anything, let alone energy and motivation to do something.

For me, depression is being in darkness that consumes me and falling into a dark hole grasping for light but it is just beyond my reach. It is having aches and pains that normally aren’t there. It is like living in an unpleasant daydream and sleeping the days away.

Depression can kill you. It has killed many people including Robin Williams who used to be the funniest person in the world. Don’t let this demonic entity hurt you or someone you love. Whether you realize it or not, people do love you. Don’t let anyone tell you different.

Other than medication, talk therapy is the best thing for depression. Also having someone to talk to day or night who understands is always helpful. No matter who my therapist is, it helps to get things off my chest.

I found God during one of my depressive episodes. He helped me come out of it and touch the light I had been grasping at but couldn’t reach. God filled me with this bright, soft light that eased my pains.
