Hope

Three months ago today, I wrote a suicide note and gathered the necessary supplies. Still here though.

Fortunate to have a great psychiatric practitioner and very supportive family and friends, my depression is under control and I’m no longer having any suicidal thinking.

If you’re depressed, feeling hopeless and helpless, please reach out to someone. Ask for help and let people help you.

Every individual has a unique set of circumstances, and there’s no guarantee that you will find relief as quickly as I have. This was my third, but worst, episode of major depression, so I already had a road map.

I can’t believe it’s only been three months. Those first several weeks felt like forever. Here’s to hope!

I'm middle-aged, mother of two adult sons, and a wife. I've been a teacher, counselor, medical transcriptionist, student teacher supervisor, substitute teacher and now I work in retail. File that under life takes many twists and turns one cannot predict!
