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.
