Struggling With Depression

Its another day, I tell myself.  I try to get up and accomplish something, but my body says, "no way, go back to bed!"  I struggle to push back, but my energy wanes.  My mind says, "go ahead and give it another shot," but I grow tired at the thought.

Depression is a life long companion.  It has robbed my life of so much.  Even as I have made great progress, it sometimes is all I can take.

It feels like a dark void with no end in sight.  It feels like a never-ending spiral sinking further and further into a deep dark hole.

Sometimes I can pull myself up more easily and sometimes I struggle to regain my footing.  Oh yes, depression is a life sucker.  Its a drain.

For now though, depression is fighting me hard.  It feels like it is winning at the moment.  I know, I've given it the power.  Now that I gave it the power, it is not wanting to relinquish control.

I wonder how much more will I need to take.  I wonder how much more must I face.  I wonder when I can one day say for certainty that depression is something I used to suffer from, not something that I still struggle with in my life.
