I understand. Depression had once taken over my life. Suicide seemed like an option to me. (I can't even believe those words as I write them, but they are 100% true.)
Most people try to hide the pain or pretend it isn't real in the hopes that it will go away or just get better. Sometimes, it does go away. But sometimes, it doesn't. It hangs around and becomes like a festering sore that never heals.
I understand. I have 30+ years in dealing with stress that comes from trauma. I work on growing and being a better me every day! I know that transformation is hard. But it is possible by taking one step at a time and never giving up. So, I wrote a book about it.
I write about my life and the things in it. I hope you will come along with me, and enjoy my blog and my books! I offer free counseling locally in my hometown, and I am creating some more free resources for you. So hang in there and check back here often.
Please take time today, right now, to breathe deeply and know that you are loved. I don't know who you are or where you are, but I LOVE YOU. Go to my contact page and send me a message. I do my best to respond personally to everyone who reaches out. YOU ARE LOVED. Just the way you are, right now.
