Alone Still

Despite knowing there are

millions of us suffering

from this demon we call

depression

And that there are

people ready to support

us

 

Why do we still feel

alone?

  1. My very thoughts this past week also. My answer is that there is an emotional disconnect caused by the illness, so that we don’t sense the care that is there from others, ultimately leaving us feeling alone.

  2. Are you alright? I just wanted to let you know, I say a prayer for you every day and I wish you strength.

    Take one day at a time. You are not the only one and you’ll come back from it, stronger and with a deeper understanding of yourself.

    Right now you are looking into your own abyss. And although this is terrible and frightening and exhausting, you will be finding that you’re able to take one step back from the abyss. And then another one. And another. You will return from this with the knowledge of what it looks like.

    And you will be able to put up enough warning signs leading to the edge, so that when you are getting nearer the abyss again, you’ll be able to take care of yourself and get back to the safe route.

    You have already taken the first step back.

    I don’t know if this is any consolation, but I have found that God never puts more on our shoulders than we can actually carry. Although it may seem that way. Whatever is thrown in your path, you are able to deal with it.

    Lots and lots of love and good thoughts to you!

    • I am deeply sorry for taking this long to respond. I had a hard time finding words (and even just the act of logging onto WP) and I don’t know why. I am really really really sorry.

      Again, Julia, thank you fro taking time to check up on me. You have done a lot to help me, and I am really grateful for it. You are one of the reasons why I am still trying to survive in this world. For that, I am really really thankful.

      I am okay, in the general sense.

      But I feel like an asshole because it seems that all our conversations are about me. And I want to return the favor and to actually know you (if that’s okay), as you’re one of my inspirations. 🙂

      • you are not an ass because of that. Believe me. 😉 I am just glad that I give a bit back of what was given to me when I needed it. I am fine. You don’t have to respond or feel obliged to write anything in any way, okay? Let’s not put any stress on that. I’ll be around. If it stresses you out when I respond (or the way I respond or whatever), it’s also okay to say so. 😉

        I know the feeling, btw. sometimes, everything is too much or you don’t really feel like logging on to some site (and that’s fine, sure it is!)

        and yeah, it’s definitely okay to get to know me if you like. 😀 After all, I’ve never been an inspiration before! 😉
