#DayofLight – I’m Still Here!

Today is the second annual #DayOfLight hosted by Brandi Riley of Mama Knows it All and Pushing Lovely.  This day was created to shed light on depression and bring it out of the dark. The news is always full of stories of people who battle depression and lose. We wanted to make it clear that depression is a battle that can be won. It is a disease that can be treated. At the end of the day, those of us who shared our stories last year want people to know we ARE STILL HERE.
If you are battling depression, it is not something you have to battle alone. Get help. Reach out to family, friends, therapists. Do not give up trying to get help. If one person is unable to help you, brush the dust off your feet and go look for help from another. Yes, it is hard. Yes, it is scary. But your life, your very life is at stake. So, keep pushing forward, keep making the effort to get the help you need. Depression does not go away, just like cancer and heart disease don’t just go away. But, like these other illnesses, depression can be treated and in some cases it can go away.
Depression does not have to end in suicide, constant medication or lifelong therapy. For some people, like me, treatment can help you to heal, move on and be able to shout to the world, “I’m still here!”  If you or someone you know needs help, check out the following resources. Be sure to check out our resource page for help with depression, found at http://bit.ly/1k22VUp.
Follow the hashtag #DayofLight to find other stories, resources and people you can reach out to for help. Do not reinvent the wheel. Do not try to go it alone. Get help. Anyone can be depressed, smart women, cute women, church women – all women. Get help so that you can be the best kind of woman – alive! Do it today. You will be glad you did. It is a gift for yourself and for those you love.

  • I think it is so important to talk about this stuff. It makes it less scary!

  • Depression is so serious - it is so good that you are posting about depression and how it is not the end.

  • I just found out recently that I was battling depression and I'm not on anti-depressants that seem to be helping. I'm also going through therapy and I have to say that I'm glad that I got help when I needed it.

  • It's nice that you offered a resource link here. My daughter has a close friend that I think might have depression. Because she's a teen her parents mark it off as theatrics. I hope they're right and I'm wrong.

  • This will help so many people. It's great that you're sharing this and raising awareness.
