Depression took charge

There were many aspects of my life that were in need of change in order to better myself and my future. I began to make said changes by eating healthier, going to therapy, exercising, and taking anti-depressants. Barely two months in and my depression charged back into my life with fury and resolve. It was as if it knew I was attempting to do things for the better and it was determined to keep me in the dark, where it thrives.
I stopped going to the gym, bad eating habits came back, I stopped communicating with my online therapist, my medication wasn’t being taken daily… I wanted to do nothing. In the back of my thoughts I would tell myself how unhealthy it was to revert back to my familiar habits, but my depression took charge once again. Things got so bad mentally that it was beginning to terrify me.
This week I hit that place (again) where I need to get this crap situated in my life. I’m in my late twenties and I need to look forward, even when I’m being dragged back in the waters of hopelessness. I have an appointment, face to face, with a therapist today that I met with about a year ago. I liked speaking with her, but she was too far away at the time and has since relocated. Here’s to hoping I can get back to where I was and stay on course because I’m really starting to feel like there’s no real way out of this dance with depression.

One thought on “Depression took charge

  1. Depression is a major battle people fight , it is fear that the devil implants in the minds of people but how can you take away this fear that seems to be sinking you . depression is a thoughts and can only be combated with words . God has not given us the spirit of fear but a sound mind ,this is why we need to confess the right words at all times . some times we confess but we don’t believe but a continuous repetition would help . why don’t you start confessing right whenever that thought come into your mind . keep saying I am not afraid, my future is secured, say God’s word to yourself and you will be surprised on how that negative thought would be taken away
