I am sure there are many organizations and church groups where people come together for one not named, just as this...but I must say to you all, you are magnificent people, and I am truly proud, and humbled, to know you would all reach out for our poet-friend.  Thank you all SO much...

Even when you see no light...it's there
Even when you hear no song...it's there
Even when you feel no joy....it's there
Because dear Poet
You're lifted by friends
who care

I remember what helped me when I was down, it was friends, just like in this thread, that kept my eyes from going down down, they kept reminding me to 'look up'...
so my fellow poet, here I am to say
Look up to the Light, do not let the darkness take you down
and write me if you need to talk...so many of us here know just where you are, and reaching out of where you are to a helping hand is a good thing...

"I had the blues because I had no shoes until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet" (paraphrasing Kahlil Gibran?)

I don't mean to be trite. I've suffered depression since earliest memories (sometimes nearly paralyzingly debilitating) and as pathetic a mantra as it may seem to some it has helped me to know that things can always be worse. Trust they always get better as well.

I hope the sun is shining where you are. A nearby body of water and a long walk may help. Good luck and gain some strength in the knowledge that you aren't alone.

A small indoor waterfall....a CD of the ocean's sound.....a little $15 machine made by a company called Homedics that allows you to change the recurrent sounds from waterfalls, oceans, a summer night, spring rain or a heartbeat may help.

Find a stranger who's willing to listen. You'd be surprised how many folks can tell a similar or worse story than yours.

Bon chance.

I have heard from our poet, who is feeling genuinely blessed by this outpouring.  
quote:
I am so touched by the way you answered my cry for help...  I read all the words my dear friends wrote down for someone they don't even know...  I promise you... in times of darkness I will  come back to my family here to read all the words of love... because it helps me to see the light again...
Thank you so much... and please let my PIP family know how blessed I feel with so many friends...

Look at the difference you have all made. Yes, we do know this poet...some of us a little better than others.  Point being, you all pitched in and shared a thought, and those thoughts are getting our poet  through to the next day.  Even though on medication, and even with that, we always need to know we are not alone.  You have all done that now, times over.  Thank you again for your care and concern.

Faith can move mountains,
love unbreaks the shattered glass..
believe with all your heart, my friend,
and watch the shadows pass.
Everything will be all right.

It's important for you to know that you aren't alone...that there are others there to lift you up and give you support...regardless of what you're going through. Please know that I am here to give a helping hand to whoever needs it. I know these feelings of depression very well. They aren't a good thing to have.

This support from all the wonderful people at Passions is wonderful and very uplifting.
Heart Hugs to you all,
Ethel

Our poet is doing much better!

quote:
My dear Karilea,

I am happy to tell you that I am doing so much better! Something definitely changed! So prayers do help! There is still a long way to go but now I have more and more good moments.

The best part is that I picked up writing again, I am working on a book, each day I try to write for 2 hours, and sometimes more. It's good to have some kind of discipline during the day, it helps me to stay focused on recovery, and it gives me the feeling I accomplished something at the end of the day.

I want to thank all my friends for their thoughts and prayers!


Thank you all, again!

This is a beautiful love and prayer thread. May our friend recover fully and enjoy life again. There are times when we are stuck in a dark tunnel. Love is the best treatment and the light is never far, it's always there. May you see it and touch it and be again wrapped in it.
Love, Margherita
