“Maybe we visited a place so dark that we couldn’t see anything but the trauma or our loved one’s absence and maybe when we came back, part of that place stuck to us like a layer of soot across our eyes. Or an iron weight in our throat. A shadow that filters how we feel and think about the world, tinging everything with shades of gray.”

    hope you are just feeling the power of someone’s literary brilliance and that everything is okay for you. But if not…and the darkness really is shadowing you I will think wonderful thoughts for you. Things won’t always be this bad.

      I’m okay today–
      this just moved me.

      It’s hard to talk about depression and mental illnesses
      without a lot of accompanying sturm und drang,
      and I thought this article accomplished that quite well.

      Love to you, too, lady–
      we’re in this fight together.
