1) It's Mental Health Awareness Month, which is the cause most dear to my heart.
2) It has Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be with You!), which is also important (obviously ;) ).
3) It has my wedding anniversary, and finding David was one of the biggest miracles I've ever seen.
4) It has my birthday.....
As I thought about my birthday, something occurred to me; I'm glad that I was born. To the average bear this may seem like a "Duh" moment, but for me it represents a real, tangible step forward in my journey towards feeling better. I honestly haven't felt truly positive about life in months. Yes, there were fleeting moments and joyous things that happened, but when I'm depressed, I can't really feel that joy. I know it should be there, and I mark the moment, but I can't feel it. There's something interfering with the signal. But tonight I felt it. I felt something positive. It spoke louder than the lies depression keeps telling me, and I wept for joy. So here's my message to you for when you're suffering:
KEEP FIGHTING! IT GETS BETTER!!!
