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!

did it anyway

Despite the heat,
Despite the sleep,
Despite the stomach ache,
Despite the headache,
Despite it all,
I had a good run.
I did it.

I had a good run,
A light run,
An energized run.
Go figure.

despite the obstacles,
I still had my perseverance.
that was enough.
