Christine: Slow Descent into Hell
multiple personalities, dissociative identity disorder, iamWE
I have not been the poster child for mental health recovery these past two months. Seems like I’ve been on a downward spiral ever since last October when we spoke at the NAMI State conference. There has been so much happening since then, that has added to my slow decent back into this hell called depression. In the video we use when giving our IOOV (In our own Voice) presentations, through NAMI there is a presenter that says something like, “I would rather give birth to ten pound twins with no anesthesia than go through a bad bout of depression.” I always smile when I hear her say that and have to agree.
Not to worry anyone. I’m not suicidal and I’m not in complete crisis. I’m just not functioning well and a bit immobilized in fear and anxiety. I’m isolating and letting life pass me by instead of living each moment to its fullest. This to shall pass…
