Depression, This is War!

Dear Depression,
            Consider this a formal declaration of war.  I do not care that in the past you have stolen entire semesters of my self-esteem.  I do not care that this is one of those semesters.  I don’t even care that my therapist says I may never be able to live a normal life.  I say, suck it, depression.  This is MY life.  And you can't have it.  This very well may be the longest war in history.  It may last until the day I take my dying breath.  But as long as I take my dying breath and you don’t, I win.  You hear that?  I am going to win this war if it takes my whole life!  And you know what?  As long as I keep fighting, my life is going to be worth fighting for.  You can’t have my life.  It’s mine.  And I’m going to live it MY way.  So suck it.  You’re not going to win this one.
Thank you for coming. I hope you get something out of this. I hope you learn about yourself. I hope you get help if you need it or give it if you can.
