I just need to tell someone!

I suffer from chronic depression and C-PTSD , and I keep a journal of my thoughts and feelings as part of my therapy. I've been doing a lot better with mindfulness meditation and EMDR therapy, but I still keep the journal and present it to my therapist so if I start to back-slide, it can be caught early.

I've been keeping this journal for about a year now, and I decided to read through it today. I realized that as of today, I've gone 5 months without a suicidal thought. I know that doesn't seem like much, but I used to have those thoughts all day, every day, so this is a HUGE leap forward for me!

I've battled with this for most of my life, and now I'm finally starting to heal. Hopefully some day I can kick this to the curb entirely, and be truly happy again for the first time in a very long time.

Go me!
