    Through the ups and downs – and back up again – I am by your side Deena. I love you through it all – along with so many others. You bring brightness into the world.

    Deena,
    I feel so lucky that I came across a link to your blog. You have expressed so well what many people feel but hide. Thank you for sharing your feelings, thoughts, and experiences.
    Trying to fight the stigma of mental disorders is so important.
    I have also tried “cautious optimism” when feeling improved. And I’ve taken the cognitive test with the animals (rhino, lion, ….?), draw the clock, draw a cube, etc.
    And being a Mom to a fun first grader is my favorite job. And I am blessed with a great husband and family supports.
    I’m rooting for you.
    Resilience.
    Sincerely, Colleen

      Colleen,
      I feel so lucky you came across my page also. Sorry for your struggles but thank you for your beautiful message. I am rooting for you also. Tomorrow I will go for another treatment and likely recite velvet,face,church, daisy,red draw my clock, and do my dot to dot. Enjoy your fun first grader, nothing is better, right?
      Thanks again,
      Deena

    Thank you for your message. I am hoping that if you are feeling challenged now that you will feel improvement soon. It is tiring.
    Whenever a depression lifts enough and I am allowed to feel positive again, I always seem to marvel “I can’t believe I felt that low.” And I always feel grateful that I somehow got through it. I savor the simplest things then.
    I hope to see your show in February.
    Sincerely, Colleen
