A Day in my Life With Depression

Using my beautiful daughter Elizabeth “Lilybet” I have created a story about living with depression and how each day contains different scenarios.

 

Happiness can sometimes seem like it is far away, in the distance and over the horizon.

 

 

You feel isolated, miserable and wondering where the next happy moment will come from.

Suddenly happiness edges closer to you tantalisingly within your grasp

 

 

Each day is like a bumpy ride

 

Emotions and moods swinging around the place

 

 

A day with ups and downs

 

 

some days you are up

 

But soon you feel on a downward slide

You can feel like you’re in a tunnel

 

And that there are some obstacles that seem impossible to overcome

 

But working hard, being brave and taking little steps, you can achieve anything

 

 

And accepting help you can remain on top

But at the end of the day working hard to combat depression brings with it some great rewards like falling asleep with loved ones
