dont give up

By Jodi Hamilton
I was looking for a way out. I couldn’t see the light. Then a trip to emergency saved my life. No more being in so much pain that you pray for god to take you.

My pain is released now. It was a fight you wouldn’t believe. So please don’t look at me like I’m weak. Because you don’t know the strength it took to get here. I went through hell and back and was lucky to survive. Some people don’t come back from this. Some people take their life.

It’s a deadly isolating disease. I won’t be ashamed to say that I beat it. Because there were years that I thought ....I didn’t want to be here. Now I’m healthy and strong. See I was lost and nobody could find me. Times got hard but my family stuck by me. They let me know I wasn’t alone. They reassured me every day. Getting better didn’t happen overnight. They fought for me and took me out of the darkness and brought me to into the light. So if your suffering just know it’ll get better. You just have to keep up the fight.

Depression kills. No more coffins and lives half-lived. Break the silence. No one wants to come home one night to nightmare and sirens. Please ask for help when you need it. Asking for help is vital, it can turn your life around. I believe it. I know you might be feeling lost and all alone. But there are people that will miss you if you’re gone. You just got to be strong. Reach out your hand and ask for help. They can fix you. I know that they can. I’m living proof that’s there’s life after depression you just got to keep pushing through. There’s no shame in asking for help. It will save your life. Maybe your medication is wrong for you. Maybe you need to try something new. But whatever you do don’t give up on YOU.
