It’s been around 8 months since my second episode of depression began and I’m starting to feel functional again.
I realised how far I’ve come yesterday. I had a momentary lapse, where the world was too much and I wanted it all to stop. A moment, which lasted about 10 minutes.
I realised during those 10 minutes that not long ago I felt like this 24/7. It was an awful and painful 10 minutes, but it was also eye-opening. I really have come a long way, and I’m feeling so much better. I must never forget the progress that I’ve made, because even if I find myself in a worse position again, I know that I can find the light one more time.
