Do you struggle with depression and anxiety after domestic violence?

I still struggle now and then and wanted to share where I find support. 

I just love Ted.com, I often just go there to find talks that will inspire my day. On this day I was very moved to shared a talk by Nikki Webber Allen about not suffering along in your depression.

Much of what she shares I felt too, feeling that being depressed and having what is labeled GAD, generalized anxiety disorder made me inadequate. How was I supposed to share that and coach women?

Over the last few years I have finally accepted that this is part of me, it routed way back to when I was little and we dodged gunfire in our home, hid around corners and ran in the middle of the night. Then, adulthood came and I learned more about life and feared my own shadow.

Do not suffer in the silence of your anxiety and depression

The point is, don’t be silent anymore, nearly everyone you meet is dealing with some form of anxiety and or/depression, some it goes quickly, for others like me, it becomes part of who I am, I just learn how to be in more control over it.

Do you have an inspiring video to share?

I hang on by a wish and a prayer

If I stumble and fall

Live through it all

And I’ll finally fall over the edge

It’s not that I want to leave you

It is me that I’m trying to escape

I’ve no strength to keep fighting the demons

That have taken control my head

And keep pushing me over the edge
