A Change is a-Brewing

I have recently made some major adjustments in my thought processes. It has not been easy by any means, and I have a long way to go, but I am extremely optimistic.

I have made a few observations in the years I have been dealing with this disorder and having friends that have been fighting it.

I find it interesting that when someone is dealing with an illness such as depression, that there isn't the same amount of compassion as someone with say, cancer.

People that have been there all along have decided that they are "done" with you, and dealing with your illness. They say things like, why don't you just get over it and make a determination to be happy? Why don't you just take care of yourself and get over your drama?

Wow! If only it were that easy! If only I could pop a pill and the next day I would be amazingly happy and content. I wish that I could just say, okay, I am over it, time to move on.

But you know what, it is NOT easy! It is HARD! But you know what else?

IT IS WORTH IT! I am strong enough to do this, with or without help! If people don't think I am worth sticking around and supporting, then so be it! I will do it for myself and show everyone just how incredibly strong and brave I am! This is for anyone that can't stand by me...


  1. I am with you girl - ALL the way!

  2. I really have made a complete change in my thinking and I know that it will take a lot to prove it to my friends, but I don't care. I just need to prove it to me! Thanks for the support!

  3. Tell me more - I'm sure I need the lessons too.
