Thank you for stumbling upon my site. This blog started as a blog to get thoughts out of my head. I did not think that hand writing a journal would last past the first week so this blog was born.
I did not care that people read it. It just felt good to get it out there. Now that it is out there, it has helped me. It is sort of a guide to see my progress.
I have suffered with depression most of my life. I tend to retreat inward when things go bad and growing up they went bad. Throughout most of my teen years, I went to school and came home into my bedroom. My parent's lives were falling apart and mine was too.
To escape this, I went to college in Illinois. It was an escape from the bedroom. It succeeded for a little while. After college, I made a 3 year stop in western New York.
I returned home and really went about life in a daze. I was going to work but really, I was suffering inside. I bounced from therapist to therapist, never really finding a fix. Finally, I decided enough is enough. Change has to come from within.
This is my journey.
