Using my beautiful daughter Elizabeth “Lilybet” I have created a story about living with depression and how each day contains different scenarios.
Happiness can sometimes seem like it is far away, in the distance and over the horizon.
You feel isolated, miserable and wondering where the next happy moment will come from.
Suddenly happiness edges closer to you tantalisingly within your grasp
Each day is like a bumpy ride
Emotions and moods swinging around the place
A day with ups and downs
some days you are up
But soon you feel on a downward slide
You can feel like you’re in a tunnel
And that there are some obstacles that seem impossible to overcome
But working hard, being brave and taking little steps, you can achieve anything
And accepting help you can remain on top
But at the end of the day working hard to combat depression brings with it some great rewards like falling asleep with loved ones
