Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 17 years ago, I lost the life I once knew, but in the process re-created a better me. I am alive and functional today because of my dog, my treatment team, my sobriety, and my willingness to re-create myself within the confines of this illness. I hate the illness, but I'm grateful for the person I've become and the opportunities I've seized because of it. I hope writing a depression blog will reduce stigma and improve the understanding and treatment of people with mental illness. All original content copyright to me: etta. Enjoy your visit!

The Luxury of Disability

Where did people ever get the idea that living on disability was easy and luxurious? I have been brushing my teeth in the kitchen for two years because I cannot afford to replace my bathroom sink. Exposed plumbing in the bathroom...incredibly luxurious! Why would I ever want to give this up?
