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

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.

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