  1. I said many of those things prior to my hospitalization. When you’re in constant pain, it’s so hard! The feelings of guilt are overwhelming. I’d pray at one point to just die in my sleep. Although, I’m better now psychologically, I have to watch and make sure that I don’t fall back down that slippery slope.

    1. One day at a time Christopher. I am glad you are feeling better. We are better and stronger than depression. What helped me was challenging it and improving my life by making continuous progress. Depression does NOT own me. This is my life and my rules and I have to protect it. Keep fighting !
