Thank you very much for this personal post. I found the first 2 paragraphs to accurately describe my feelings, experience, and dread over the last 2 decades. I’m compelled to share with family and friends because you put it so succinctly in so few words. Bravo
I’m in the same boat, my meds work very well, but I still slip away into the darkness sometimes. I realize that this is not a situational problem anymore, I used to always think I became depressed when bad things happened around me. It’s here, I can’t get rid of it, I’m 44 and finally figured that out. Even if life is perfect by whatever metric, I can fall in that hole anytime. Expression is strong tool to survive this, so again I appreciate that you shared.
