In honour of Depression Awareness week, I thought I’d share a poem I wrote. I wrote this when I was first started on heavy antidepressants, my body and mind going through that process of trying to adjust to new medication, and feeling like you don’t know who you are any more. I think this was last October, and I remember hating it so much, and wanting to stop, so badly. But now I’m glad I stuck it through, learning that things really do get worse before they get better. Enjoy. 🙂 ❤
My head has become an ongoing
waves moving up
to places I never knew I could be
places I didn’t want to be
I couldn’t find myself any more
I desperately wanted to come back to the shore.
