    Depression is an awful thing. Trying to claw your way into normalcy is a hurculin task. Doubly hard when you have children. They dont understand why mom or dad is not functioning and they just love you, no matter what. Sending strength your way....

    Thank you for sharing this and I wish more people could understand how debilitating depression can be sometimes. None of us ask for it. I am not a mother but I send light and hope your way. I don't think I would understand the severity or depth of depression even as a a teenager... I didn't understand that's what I was dealing with until I was diagnosed in college. So I can only imagine it makes it even more complicated wanting to protect a child's innocence but also let them know you're trying your best and it's not so simple to explain. Most of us do the best we can with what we are given. There are few words for how that darkness can come into our lives when we just want to live the best life with our family, friends and ones we love.

    Thinking of you! <3

    A touching and bitter account of depression - something we can all relate to in some way. Congratulations! Your writing was brutal and chaotic in form, but soft in language.
