Fighting Lions From My Past
Monday, July 20, 2009
For those who don't know me, I am afflicted with both Major and Chronic Depression. The meds my Psychiatrist have prescribed for me are working, but what I really need is to pull this thing out with my therapist.
I haven't been able to do this because it is something in my past that I WISH I had done, but didn't have the social skills to deal with it.
Since I am pretty sure about what I'm facing, I should be able to take this out and intellectually bring it out and dissect it. I know that I can't go back and change what I did nor can I go back and bring it back up again - there are too many people that would be hurt, including me.
See, even blogging about this I can't get specific. I am afraid to confront this thing directly.
Even though I am the Co-Founder of the Dealing with Depression team and I can give other people advice and point out alternatives for them, I'm unable to do it for myself. Looking at ourselves truthfully and honestly is one of the most difficult things we can do.
