A Story of Depression & Healing

 

I have always been the strong one, the rock everyone leaned on, the immovable, opinionated, steadfast, rock-solid woman that could take anything and come out on the offensive, but I have to tell you, when hit by a personal traumatic event a few months ago, I hit bottom.  Depression set in so fast and so hard that I was unreachable before I knew it.  I didn’t seriously think of suicide as an option, most of the time, but I had planned how I would do it, if it got that bad.

On to my story...

 

I gathered the Signs and Sayings below during my time of depression. 

They, each one, applied to me at the time. 

Would anyone care about losing me

Wild Woman

Warrior Love

Wolf Nature

Took breath let it go

She was fierce

Setting Boundaries does not make me mean

Regrets

Put Back together

Requires no validation

Live only as YOU can
