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!

I have nothing to complain about...
I thought I did, but tonight I learned otherwise.
Please keep my friend, Jeannie, in your prayers.
Thank you.

I know we're talking about apples and oranges here, but I depression is malignant and probably even more destructive than cancer and heart disease. My mom and dad have both almost died with those physical maladies. I was depressed prior to their trials, during their trials, and after too. They've fared much better over the years since than I have.
