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!

Thirty six days

Thirty six days ago I could do this...




Today I can do this...


and this...


and most incredibly, THIS...


Just one hour per day for 36 days.

We can do anything if we put our minds to it, don't you think? I've grown physically, mentally and spiritually because I made one simple decision and then took action based on that decision. So simple...so profound.
What decision could you make to change your life today? What actions have you yet to take? If I can do this, you can do anything, too. Think about it.
