Slip, Trip and Fall

The view from down here

Is not a pretty site

And just when I think

I can’t fall any further

I slip on my depression

And trip over my anxieties

I pray I soon reach the bottom

So I can focus on the way

To climb back to the top

But right now I can’t

Let go of my painful past

Or stop fearing what comes next

So I fall another feet or two

Losing a little more of who it am

  1. I have been going through phases of loneliness and depression over the past few months – wondering what to do to bring back the constant happiness I used to have. For me, music writing and my cat can help shift the mood even if just for a little bit

    1. I have a lot of stress in my life right now and my therapist was gone last week so there was no outlet… it has really built up. I hope you find your way to some happiness!

      1. I had an intake appointment through my insurance to get me a therapist but then no follow up for months..I’m trying to get through on my own but might need to call and see why I slipped through the cracks. I hope you can vent to your therapist and there is relief

      2. I know we are short handed on therapist/doctors here in Iowa. I am lucky I found him when I did. I would definitely pursue an answer from your insurance company. If it gets bad and there is no one around I have used some of the help lines. It can really take a weight off of you.

      3. Thank you for the advice. It is difficult in this day and age where more and more people suffer from anxiety or depression. I’m glad someone else understands how tough it can be
