My desire is to never lose that ability, that I never admit defeat, or become another name on the list of those who've lost the war on their minds. I hope that, as time goes on, and if the setbacks continue to occur, I seek not an exit but a welcome embrace. Until it is over, for better or worse, I will continue to chronicle my struggles, making them public in an effort to let you know you are not alone.
To those of you in the throes of your own depression I offer this: You may be cracked and chipped on every side but your depression has not crushed or conquered you. Do not despair, you will not be defeated. You are at a turning point and victory is close at hand. As always be encouraged, empowered, and emboldened to courageously communicate your truth!
