I woke this morning with THAT feeling. You know the one where you completely and utterly down for no apparent reason? Depression is the name; standing strong is the game.
I know, the ones who read my blog might ask, “What in the world are you ever talking about?” Yes, I am guilty, guilty of babble. Times like today make it about ten times worse.
You who battle depression may understand. Yesterday was such a great day. I was hyped up and feeling all positive and great about life. This morning though, this tug, tug on my feelings bringing me on the brink of despair. I then think, like really rattle my brain and try and figure out the reason behind it. Nothing, there is nothing! All is good in my life. I KNOW I have no reason to be depressed. Sadly though, knowing and feeling are two different things.
I refuse to let it win. I bow my head and ask God in. I think of my blessings. I think of my kids and grand babies. My life is good, my life is blessed. Of all the things that I have been through, depression will NOT be what tears me down. Therefore, I pray and I stand strong! I have fought many things in my life. In this fight I will, once again, be a survivor!
