When you Cannot Trust Your Brain

Chronic depression is a daily fight against yourself

If depression does initiate the dehumanization process, your personal circumstances can accelerate it when there’s scant compassion for your predicament.

But the minute I recovered my writing voice, the world was once again at my fingertips thanks to the internet.

If the brain of a chronic depressive refuses to accept or trust in your gift of continued presence, care, and affection, it’s because their head is a battlefield and there is no truce, no respite.

And yet, we all carry the antidote: The human heart has the power to guide you toward safety when it identifies others as kin and it will show you the way if you let it.
