Nowadays, depression seems to be a very familiar word to everyone of us. In our daily lives, how challenging to encounter many unplanned and unexpected events, circumstances and experiences that may change our way of thinking to become better or worst person that we can be.
Getting married at late 30’s, pushed me to leave my career in province to continue life with my husband in Manila. Married life did not get as easy, savings started to get down and tight. I was not able to get job so badly. My husband needed his daily medicines for his kidney problem. Started a business but failed. Become a victim of swindler, and I had to file a case in court. My mom got sick and I had to go back to province to take care of her. Afterwards, I got sick and I have to undergo surgery. My personal life goes so depressing!
Depression hits me, I almost give up! I don’t know what to do, I am upset, sad, anxiousness, restlessness, feeling empty and hopeless. I cried and cried! But, I have to accept and let go all the tears and pains. After crying and lifting up to Almighty God, I feel relieved. I thought of my love ones, who gives me strength to fight after all.
