I was recently diagnosed with depression. For me it was brought on by years of domestic violence. It wasn't until I hit rock bottom and was going to hang myself that I was taken for assessment and got help. I didn't know I was depressed, I didn't know that there was help out there. I have been on medication and had therapy for a couple of months now and I feel like I am a new person. Okay, I still get sad but who doesn't? Now I don't feel like everything that is wrong is my fault and I take one day at a time, knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and for once it's not the headlamp of the oncoming train.
