two weeks back i saw a window and took it. gave up coffee. a storm system spread across my sky. i got sick but nothing compared to dope sick 7 years ago. just a mighty headache is all. now i start my mornings with triple leaf green tea and a smile. against all odds. i live and love my chemical free life. i can hold my head high again. i can look you in the eyes again. i worked so hard to get here. dear God, i am down on my knees…asking how can i be of maximum use? thank you for opening my eyes.
You describe the mood swings of our lives so well. Life wants me around now, I can hardly believe it. It’s not so hard hanging on…the lows are not so low, but the work never seems to end. But it’s good work. It’s useful work using me. And I like it. Depression no longer has me in a stranglehold. I cannot be bullied into submission. I won the fight this time. But I know each new day is another round. K
