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!

depression

it's not always what you'd think.
sometimes it's just this.
not sad
not lonely
not anxious
not restless
not hopeless.


it's not always what you'd think.
sometimes it's just this.
just slow
just numb
just gray
just flat
just vacant.


just vacant.
depression.
