This is my story.
The story of why I started the Giving Voice to Depression podcast.
I first told it four years ago when we started this resource because it didn’t seem fair to ask others to share their stories unless my sister and I did, too.
I am re-posting it now because, being sick for the past several weeks I’ve had a lot of time to think,
and question my life and my work and myself.
Not in a depressed way, thankfully . But in that fevered and can’t-sleep way.
And frankly, I think I needed to be reminded of how far I’ve come (mentally)
so that I can honestly and passionately continue to tell anyone listening that things really truly can get better.
It might not be as soon or as easily as we’d like.
But everything can change.
And there are things we can do when we first see the warning signs to give ourselves a better fighting chance.
I didn’t know that four years ago.
Thanks to all the people who’ve shared their stories with us, I know it now.
And I believe it and see it work for myself and others.
Thank you for having taken this journey with us.
Thank you for listening and for sharing and for caring– for yourselves and each other.
We truly are stronger together.
