173. Yet there was hope!

An entry from my journal of January 25, 2007.

“The depression is unrelenting and deep. Last night I slept for five hours at the most. I’m getting worse each day. This is the tenth medication I’ve been on…I am in the last hours of my life.”

These were the words of a desperate man. When I had given up all hope for my recovery, yet there was hope. You see, God was my hope, though I didn’t realize it at this low point in my life. He had a plan for me to triumph over depression, and that plan has now been realized.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.

    This “snapshot” from 2007 compared to where you are now can give real hope to those who are suffering as you were. Thanks!
