When I was depressed a few years back, I believed I couldn’t escape this self-imposed lockdown. It was like looking down a stretch of highway with no end in sight. The mystery of the whole thing was trying to figure out how I got in this fix in the first place?
That’s the problem with depression. Where does it come from and how to get rid of it? Like getting rid of a cold or the flu. We all know how this ordeal begins: slowly and with that intense grip that sticks to us like swamp mud. And then comes the backing away from family, friends and those with whom we are closest. Our enclosure is much like the prison cell, excepting that we have the key that could free us. Only I have the power to free myself.
So now, today, I can share how in my own time in lockdown I found the way out. At first I really didn’t know what I had, just that something had me. I had had this experience before when I was addicted to a substance that I felt I could not live without. But for thirty years of days sober and serene, my recovery was accomplished by living a program that not only promised hope and peace, but a program that actually delivered on that promise.
I want to share that book with you, just as Dr. Bob and Bill W., shared their recovery experience with others like themselves and now thousands of grateful recovered addicts.
In 1998 the thoughts and miracles of others who were depressed, who use the 12 Steps have their own book, describing in detail, Step by Step, how they unlocked their own personal prison. Actually, it is a book that has HOPE written all over it. It provides a way out for all of us who thought that there was no way out–and that suicide was our only escape. We all know how depression and its debilitating isolation completely immobilizes and deadens us to all hope and meaning.
To set a goal for our own recovery is possible now with Depressed Anonymous. We know. We’ve been there. Depression doesn’t have to last forever. Now this is not some “pie in the sky” stuff. Read the stories of those who did find hope and recovery, and see how they put their trust in that power greater than themselves. They made a decision to give it their all, finding a meaning for their lives. and a reason to live.
We all were able to gradually free ourselves from the fog, the isolation, and begin to find a continual hope with the support of our Depressed Anonymous Fellowship.
