It Only Took Therapy, Drugs, Alcohol, Doctors, And Being Hospitalized... But I Finally Got It!I fight depression, I have been fighting with it almost my whole life, and it wasn't until one lonesome night on a psych ward, that I finally had my epiphany...
For the longest time I thought I was fighting myself. Fighting my own thoughts and feelings and urges. Through listening to the other people on my ward, people who fought with bi-polar, depression, addictions, etc. I discovered something, my depression is a disease! It is a horrible disease that is eating away at my mind and my demeanor.
My epiphany was that I don't need to fight myself anymore, I am fighting Depression.
And this simple thought in my head completely changed my approach to my depression. Looking past the depression, I know who I am and I know that I am a loving, beautiful person who wants to live and has the capability of happiness- and as long as I believe in that and push that part of me, I can fight, and I will defeat my depression.
