Because Depression is a Real Thing
It should be discussed without judgement.
It should be dealt with….without shame.
One should not be embarrassed.
Since Ms. Jo and Hunter’s illness…..I’ve been a bit back on the struggle bus. Not as bad as I was for the last 6 mths…I mean, I had a couple of weeks of feeling “normal”…now….I’ve taken a few steps back.
I am uneasy.
I want to cry.
I want to sleep.
I want to hide.
I want my husband to hug me more.
I do not want to be around people.
I have to force myself to be happy.
The fact of the matter is…I’m not happy.
I have peace.
I have joy.
I know that happy is circumstantial and true joy comes from the Lord.
Even in my darkest moments….I have peace.
Joy *always* comes in the morning.
For tonight….I will hide in my bedroom.
Hug my husband.
Remind myself of Truths.
Be thankful that I have medication to help me.
I will not fear.
I will not be shamed.
I will not be judged.
I am who I am.
I am a wife.
I am a mother.
I am a daughter.
I am a sister.
I am a warrior.
I am strong in the Lord.
He is my Sustainer.
He is my Refuge.
He is my Strength.
End the stigma.
Talk about depression.
Get out of hiding and ask for help.
You are no alone.
