3 Day Quote Challenge (day 3)

gandiIn this blog I often talk about strength and hope, believing that most of the time I have neither.

When you emotionally break down, that dark place robs you of your natural survival feelings, the truth be told mental illness is the only thing that keeps you company, it hugs you tight, whispering in your ear that it will never let you go.

I got better, and fell prey to its clutches again coupled now with homelessness, it’s been an up and down struggle for the last three and a half years, yet somehow I’m still here, perhaps that for me is strength.

About therabbitholez

I returned to this blog in September 2014, after a 2 year absence, due to depressive illness and homelessness. This journey charts the rocky road to recovery and my feelings about it, and getting a home together after losing everything, this too has been a rocky rocky, both things connected on many levels, but separate at the same time. If you want to know more please read my blog:) and comment on any blog you like I enjoy the interaction, and belong to a great community on here. Thanks for reading.:)

  6. Your words… you’re “still here”. Right there is evidence of your immense strength and resilience. And you could never accomplish that without having had hope. You’re doing it, you’re living it. You are a survivor
