I feel the same way that you do. I struggle with depression and the suicide of Robin Williams, a man with so many resources, left me more upset than it really should have. If he couldn't win the battle, then what chance do we have? But really, what is there to do? Live this day and then live the next and the next. Continue. Survive. And then... maybe thrive. We can do this. And maybe, do this in the memory of Robin Williams and all others who lose the fight with depression.
I can't fathom what anyone goes through who suffers with depression. I know with my occasional moodiness the best Rx I found myself is to talk to God. Speaking with Him helps to elate my fears and worries. I don't know, if this helps someone who is clinical depressed (medicated or not), but I thought I'd share this with you. My prayer is that you or others will never find themselves at the end of life's rope (no pun intended) where you think the only answer is to death, and if you find yourselves struggling that you have the strength to reach out to someone for help. I can't imagine, as I said what this is like and my heart aches for anyone who has to live like this. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. How courageous!
Cathy,Thank you VERY much for your wonderful comment! I am Christian, so my faith is a huge help. But no matter what - when the chemistry in my head switches, praying alone does not help.... As harsh as this might sound to some people. I have left my church in Germany, because they didn't agree on me taking meds. They said praying is enough, but THAT is dangerous and might lead people into suicide.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I love reading them all and will try my best to answer all of your questions. If you would like to contact me for a quicker response please feel free to tweet me at (@grfrprincess), message me on Instagram (@anni_s) or email me. ~Anni
