Hi Bethany. I feel like I know you so well; our stories are similar, and I truly feel blessed to have read yours. I was very greatly helped by a wonderful therapist who did understand me and helped me to navigate this road of life. As a writer, you have a great resource because you can express on paper what you may not be able to express verbally so, by all means, give your therapist a copy of this extremely well-written account of what depression is to you. May you find relief from the torture that is depression, and I certainly wish for you to find the right therapist because he/she can help you move mountains. Take care, and God bless.
