Living in the Shadow of Abuse

“Depression is nourished by a lifetime of ungrieved and unforgiven hurts” –Penelope Sweet

I read this today and it hit home really hard.  It fits me to a tee.  I’m going to be reading Am I Bad? and Taking Back Our Lives over the next couple of weeks.  I need to recover and heal from my abuse if I am ever going to control this depression.  It was a little bit better today, but still bad.  I took some St. John’s Wort (which I need to start doing regularly), and I don’t know if it’s just psychological, but it seemed to help a bit.

I do know that the numbness and hopeless I am feeling will drag me down into a hole that I won’t be able to get out of, if I let it.  I simply can’t let it.  I’m on the brink, and that scares me.

Three Days Grace is my favorite band and I am really feeling this song today…
