I’ve suffered from depression from time to time. Recently the catalyst has been my divorce. It’s an odd thing, depression, one day we’re feeling happy and content, the next day, due to changes in our chemistry, we’re feeling so much dread we’d consider killing ourselves to get relief. For me, that impulse towards self-destruction is more about the shame of being depressed again. I’m getting over that shame. And writing about my “issues” has been a sort of therapy for me. Here, I’m collecting the depression and addiction posts, to provide a thread for you to follow. I hope it leaves you more calm, cool, and connected. Peace.

My first book on depression and my own recovery story is now available through Amazon. Here Comes the Darkness: Surviving and Thriving After a Diagnosis of Mental Illness.
