Good Morning Pain.
Hesitantly I rise to meet another day
Terrified of its tension and strain
My body and soul don’t want to get up
For worries weigh me down
Dread locks my strength and will
And all I want to do is to lie in bed all day.
(C) Dr. Miriam Kinai Available from Poems of My Heart

Dealing with Depression Holistically

  1. This blog resonated with me on a personal level. Writing therapy has been a lifesaver in my journey with depression. Expressing those bottled-up emotions on paper can be incredibly cathartic. The mention of different types of writing therapy, like journaling or creative writing, is spot on! It's like giving your feelings a voice. ✍️💬

    If anyone here is feeling the weight of depression, I'd also suggest considering professional help. Sometimes, we need counseling for depression to complement these therapeutic techniques.
