Coming through the other side of depression

Hello all.

This week Twyla Wilband from Inside the Looking Glass is writing directly to you as she relates to what you feel like when severely depressed, want to self-harm, and suicide ideation.  She knows because she’s been there.

An excerpt from Twyla’s story:

“I know what it is like to feel heartache, to feel alone, and to wonder why God has given you life. Wanting to curse God that He made a mistake giving you life where there are people around dying and want to live. I know what it is like to wake up in the morning with no physical or mental energy and wondering how you are going to get through the day. To feel sadness that lasts for days, weeks, and sometimes months without end. I understand the feeling of discontent, no matter how hard you try to change your mood- there still is that underlying feeling of numb and that something is missing. To feel ambivalent about everything, I get it.”

To read the rest of the story, and voice your opinion and/or experiences in the comments, I would like to reroute you to MentalHealthTalk.info by clicking on this link: http://mentalhealthtalk.info/depression-suicidal.  You will also get to see a beautiful piece of art by Twyla.

Thank you and have a great day.

Love,
Trish
