How depression feels…

A dark smoke has fallen over my mind and body.

I am paralyzed in my own head.


What will set me free?

I am the watcher, the controller of these thoughts.

I notice them. I recognize the thoughts for what they are.. thoughts

my mind has created.


To protect me from feeling past pain.

In treatment, we learned…

‘Depression is Anger Turned Inward’

This realization probes into the cause of the depression. Once the mighty pain is felt (through tons of tears and journaling), the depression isn’t as loud.

It quiets down so you can live.
