I don’t usually write about family, but I had a mother that suffered with depression most of her life. This was very hard to deal with, and I am not going to say more about her.
This affected me from childhood, and I would have panic attacks from being a young child, and continued all my life. I have learned to deal with it, but I believe that we are always recovering from it.
At one point my husband spoke to my parents, as her depression was affecting me. I needed to be with people that had harmony, gratitude, love, comfort, laughed, and were fun.
So for a short period of time, I had to stay away from her, to get myself well.
Mum passed when she was 80, and it was a blessing for her, at her life could have been so much better.
I am writing this, because so many writers here suffer, and the most important thing for me, is to be with positive people.
