Depression Marathon Blog

My photo
Diagnosed with depression 19 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!

Flowers for the depression

I don't have much new to say. I'm still disinterested, and I'm a bit tired of complaining about it. Instead, I thought I'd share with you a gift I received from my friend, Cindy. The flowers above are all from her yard and were arranged by her. When she gave them to me she wished my current struggles away, and she hoped the flowers would help. They did. Thanks, Cindy. Aren't they beautiful?
