I’ve been disabled from a psychological illness for the past 6 years. Up until 8 months ago I thought my life was over. Why? Because the nature of my illness (bipolar disorder/severe depression) will make you feel that way. It does not take that many negative things to happen in your life (coupled with manic depression) to make one give up hope. Through good doctoring and proper medication usage I have finally come out of that dark grave that depression buried me in. This is just my opinion based on my personal experience.
