I suffer from depression. I can usually keep it under control, but sometimes it just takes over. That has been what has been happening to me the past few days. I'm fighting it, and it's getting better. At one time, I took meds for it. But when I was on those meds, I literally had no life. No emotion. No highs, no lows...just nothing. I would just "breathe" my way through day after day. That is no way to live. I would rather have feeling...ANY feeling....than to feel nothing at all. Only those who suffer from depression can understand. So this is for all of you who have felt the pain...walked the walk...and WON :-)

Thank you for viewing.....

Yes, I know dark days, very hard to deal with, but as you say, any feeling is better than no feeling. Hang in there and wait for the sunshine to return.
Beautiful image, very moving image and words.

I've suffered bouts of depression since the early 70s, brought on by P.T.S.D. from VietNam. Like you say prescription meds just kill the soul. I seemed to get passed it for a long time but it returned in the early 2000s, then I got Cancer, since the fight to beat that monster and surviving there is absolutely nothing in this world worth getting Depressed about, almost dieing is a sure cure for Depression but I don't recomend you try it, it's not so fun.
Super work Karen

Hmm ... You're a great lady to think of others in need of a note of tenderness. The dépresssion it's like to have too much love and not to accept the finish of a reign, love is evil of the century it affects more people than have people think. A tender moment brings one that is missing, the dream, the nonchalance of feeling again grow in the soul. A simple jesture smile can make that will last an eternity as one who receives it ..... Thanks again for open your heart to love my Beautiful , because a smile is the beginning of love or at least have resscent values ​​((5 + +))

Humm... Tu es une grande Dame pour penser aux autres dans le besoins d'un petit mot de tendresse . La dépresssion c'est comme d'avoir trop aimer et de ne pas accepter la finition d'un reigne ,l'amour c'est le mal du siècle il touche plus de monde que l'ont pensent .Un moment de tendresse apporte à celui qui est en manque ,le rêve ,la nonchalence de se sentir à nouveau grandir dans l'âme .Un simple jeste peut apporter un sourire qui durera comme une éternitéà celui où celle qui le recevra.....Mercis encore ma Belle de rouvrir ton coeur à l'amour ,car un sourire est le début de l'amour du moins ont en resscent les valeurs ((5++))

A very expressive and poignant image. I've had many dark nights of the soul since losing LJ, but my art is my light in the middle of the night, soothing and healing me from my little illuminated screen. I'm glad you have a light in the middle of the night, too, Karen. A place to go to express your feelings. You are making it through the darkness, one moment, one image, one day at a time, and that is all that matters, on your journey to a better place and understanding of who you are. I am learning to let myself feel everything without fear or control, and most of all, how to be gentle and loving with myself. Keep feeling and keep creating, my friend, and you will be okay. CC

I suffer from bipolar disorder, and I could never explain how I was feeling most of the time. I would always say "numb". I really like "Just Breathing". It says so much more. Thank you and keep fighting.

Depression is truly a terrible condition my dear, my father suffered from it and when my mother passed away, he just sunk and two year later passed away too...So I can image how sad it is but the human being can do anything with the help of God! This image says everything!
God Bless you
