It has not been my experience that one can just "get over" chronic depression. Snap out of it. Lighten up. Look on the bright side. But what one can do is put one foot in front of the other and get through one day, one hour, one minute at a time if that's all the farther we dare look. There is a better life out there. A better life in here, within ourselves. And I am on the journey to find that life, to build that life, to lift the weight of depression from my soul as best I can with what I have.
I have already made a start, otherwise I would be too incapacitated to write this blog. I hope to share what has helped, what is helping, and what the ups and downs are along the way. I would hope that in sharing, perhaps someone else will be encouraged to begin their own journey to a better life. I look forward to having your company along the way.
