Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 16 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!

A moment of clarity

It's a rare moment when something somebody says sticks in my brain. My brain's been a bit slippery since depression took residence almost eight years ago. This morning, however, three profound words stuck like glue to my typically Teflon skull.

None of your links to your posts on The Second Road seem to work the site no longer active? It could just be my computer, but it's the same for all the links you've posted: it's just a blank page constantly stuck in "loading."

It's possible the site is no longer working. I don't know. Sorry about that.
