Wednesday Words



I’ve been following Crazy with Twins Wednesday Words for a while and thought I’d join in.

The idea is to blog a quote, lyric or poem that inspires you to get you through the week.

I’ve spoken before about how I’m a “manic depressive” and I’ve been really struggling the past few weeks. I’ve let things get to me that I shouldn’t have. I’ve let things get to me and put me in a place I don’t want to be. I’ve let things put me in that place and eat away at me. They’ve put me there and taken the rope away for me to climb out. I’m struggling to get out. But I will. Like all the other times I have.

My quote this week is this:

Depression is something that doesn’t just go away. It’s just… there and you deal with it. It’s like… malaria or something. Maybe it won’t be cured, but you’ve got to take the medication you’re prescribed, and you stay out of situations that are going to trigger it.

    I’m sorry to hear you are struggling. A great quote though. I used to battle depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder. It can leave you. It just takes a long time. Some people learn to cope, and for others, it just falls away. I don’t know how or when I was cured. It left so slowly, with on and off days, that it wasn’t til years later, I realised it had gone completely. Never give up hope.

    Thankyou for linking up to Wednesday Words. xx

    An interesting quote from an unexpected (by me) source – and a great attitude. I’ve felt very inspired by many people like you, that I’ve ‘met’ like this. You might care to look at the first real blog post I ever did: – I feel like that even more than I did then! All the best for your fight!

    This quote is so true; for me depression is never truly beaten but its managed and if you know how to manage it you can keep it at bay. Its tough but if you’re positive, you can overcome it. i wish you all the best and hope your struggle is shortlived x
