I am a middle-aged mom and ordained minister who is a survivor of an abusive relationship, survivor of Post-Partum depression and a fighter of chronic depression. I refuse to give up! Call it strong-will or sheer stubborness, but it’s helping me.
I have my good days and my bad days. I’m trying to reduce the bad days by setting little goals. I think by talking about my depression with people it also helps. I’m trying to fight the stigma of mental illness. I’m not crazy. You aren’t crazy. It’s just this crazy life has us stressed out and eventually your mind says, “Enough!!”
So let’s fight this together. Let’s Fight the Darkness!
