Reconciling With Having Depression for Life: Published Piece!

I’ve had another piece published by The Mighty, a well-known website that advocates sharing stories of mental illness, disability and disease. It’s not always easy to get published with them so I’m incredibly pleased that the piece I only submitted yesterday has been published already today! Here it is if you want to go there straight now: When You Have to Come to Terms With the Possibility of Having Depression for Life

My original title was ‘Reconciling With Having Depression for Life’. They have changed it, as they can, as it’s their site, but the article is still my own (apart from a couple of typos on their part I hasten to add!). The message is still there and I’m still the writer so it’s all good!

Please give it a read right here: When You Have to Come to Terms With the Possibility of Having Depression for Life

I’d also really appreciate it if you would like my post (if you like it of course) and consider following my account on The Mighty site. It all helps for being considered for further writing pieces in the future.  I’ll even be more cheeky and ask you to share it on your social media if you would be so kind. Thanks, as always, lovely blog followers, for your support!

  1. Great article. I did give it a like. I have been battling depression for most of my life as well. I keep thinking when will I be able to come off of my anti-depressants and then I get depressed and wonder what would happen to me if I weren’t on them. It is exhausting to think about and I applaud you for taking it out of the box and revealing all of it’s ugliness. I know how hard that is. Great job!

    1. Thanks for your encouragement Christy. I have also wanted to come off antidepressants as soon as possible each time I’ve had depression. My story is that it was not a good idea and I have now come to terms with probably being on them for life. I had a difficult conversation with a psychiatrist to get there but I know it’s the right thing for me.

      Thank you so much for your support of this piece. It makes it worth writing. Take care and I hope you will see some brighter days too.
