Just wanted to wish everyone a really Happy New Year. I know we are at various stages in our recoveries but never give up on hope.
My life has been one long battle with depression from my early teens.
I could blame my parents for neglect and physical and verbal violence.
I could blame my ex husband for beating me so many times it appeared normal to me.
I could blame the man who date raped me in 2005 after my divorce.
Thats not to say I am not angry over my past because I really really was.
But I turned that anger inwardly on to myself for not having a backbone or standing up for myself.
Peroids of depression ,suicide attempts, and a battle with an eating disorder later .
I am at a point where I am ready to deal with my past and move forward with my life.
This time last year I had planned to take my life and this year I am planning to begin it.
You all deserve better than your getting at this moment in time but things can and do get better.
Take care of yourselves
I can only learn to deal with it and not shy away from it
