Dysthymia,

A beautifully written poem that I can relate to! It reminded me of a great book entitled “Love You Forever” by Robert Munsch that I think you’d love to read! Thank you for sharing!

To look back on the past and have a good laugh. Surely a goal worth aspiring for. Nicely said.

Mental break downs
Goldfinch60 said:

Very good write, as Lawless said you need patience to survive, and by the way your words have been written you have both patience and a strong will to move forward - see you at the top of the hill.

Patience is critical to surviving. The hard times are temporary.

A very fine piece expressing your struggle.

Depression pills update.
James Michael said:

Also, thank you for persevering the opinions we have. I enjoyed your poem very much. It is well written and conveys your struggle.

My son, sister and deceased brother were diagnosed with major depression. My sister spent years researching the disease, she found that she fell into the dysthymia category and is doing fine without medication. I truly hope that you can do the same.

Hood had many good points. You really shouldn\'t trust anyone but yourself.

Try cutting down pills gradually maybe? Hopefully you\'ll be okay for a \'longer while\' :) And just don\'t hear me sing - or you\'ll never recover. No -one will! heehee.

Change .
Diamond said:

Yup, once one overcomes the past...the others who can\'t see beyond must come to terms with themselves. Nothing one can do about it.

I am a penny.
LittleGift said:

Loved this. Had to save as it took me back to when I was little. My name is Penny and I had friends who would lift me up and offer me to the cashier if they were a penny short. And another friend told me regularly that “Penny one day you will grow up to be a £5 note” lol I was very small for my age but eventually yes I did grow

Thanks for reminding me 😊

I just want to feel better already.
Resa71 said:

I’m not sure what ails you,
However I have a condition called fibromyalgia.
I was treated like a crazy person for many years.
Every day I’m in pain, or , and having problems with my stomach, bladder, balance.
I know it’s hard to carry on sometimes but, try to enjoy all the gifts in your life.
Every morning I count the good things I have in my life.
I think of the suffering others, many so much worse than my own.
I wish you well:)
Keep writing, stay connected.
This is a big part of what keeps me going.

Sickness of depression
James Michael said:

I have experienced clinical depression and have been hospitalized 4 times. I have had many suicide attempts.

My advice is to get the proper help from professionals and medication that works. It will be hard. With persistence and research you can come to terms with your disease. Things have changed drastically for the mentally ill in the last 50 years; there is hope.

Your poem is honest, well written and heartfelt. Just remember that there are many here who share your plight and will support you.
