The Shrowded Fog Of Depression

Depression is the absolute pits. Extremely hard to deal with, to live with. The cycle can be long winded but perseverance is a must because there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I have had numerous bouts of depression some lasting 6 to 12 months.

One time when i went to the pharmacist to fill a script for Zoloft, an antidepressant, he said to me… patient, the medication will assist, and you will wake up one day, and it will feel like a light switch has been turned on and you willl be ok. And my god, he was right, 6 months later, I woke up feeling fine, the shrowd of darkness had lifted and cleared.

It was an amazing experience, I cried with tears of joy.

Bipolar is an important topic for me as I have travelled through the highs and lows of this particular mental illness for just over 25 years now. Follow my journey from the past to present and hopefully some of you out there may gain some inspiration and come to the realisation....that it can be a positive and rewarding experience once you have learnt the tools of the trade...and enable you, or someone special in your life, to have a fruitful and rewarding life.
