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!

Second Place

I finished second.
No, I'm not talking about running this time.
My piece, Winter Waterfall, won second place in the juried art show at the local art center.
This was quite a surprise, as there was some beautiful, emotional, and intriguing art work in the show.
And the awards were voted upon by art center staff--i.e. people who should know what they're doing!
I'm shocked.
And honored.
