We all like to know we aren’t alone, well here is a testimony from someone who suffered from depression and sought counselling to deal with it:
“I would describe my life with depression as hopeless, I felt hopeless and worthless. I didn’t feel as though I was any good at anything and I often felt as though I had no reason to live. I went for days without leaving the house, literally hiding from anyone who knocked on my door. Once I had my Son this only got worse with post natal depression kicking in. I felt like he needed a better mother, like I wanted to be happier for him, so I sought counselling. Counselling made me feel like I wasn’t alone. I felt like I could be honest about how I was feeling and little did I know, they actually understood what I was going through! My counsellor gave me so many new skills on how to deal with my depression, it is still there, it creeps in through hard times, but I am no longer crippled in a hopeless life, I am able to cope and smile a genuine smile every day. I would strongly encourage anyone with depression to talk to someone, you are not alone and there is help available. Life isn’t about making the best of what you have, it is about making the changes necessary to have the best life.”
