Hope does exist; things truly can get better.
No, not just for me. I am not a special case. Things can and, if you never give up, WILL improve for YOU. Significantly so. Irrefutably.
Anyone who remembers my earlier posts will recall in how much suffering I was in. If you don't remember, I welcome and encourage you to find and read my earlier, but still recent, posts. Clearly, I was in a state of helplessness and hopelessness.
Am I 100% better? No, but 80-90% better is good enough for me.
My point is: I was in a state of hopelessness until very recently. Even in my hopelessness, I never genuinely gave up. No matter how small, I still had a tiny, microscopic ray of hope within my heart. No matter how helpless or downtrodden you feel, even YOU have some iota of hope within you. How do I know this? Because you aren't dead. Because you're reading my words in hopes that I can offer you any reassurance or help. Because you desperately desire to get better yet have run out of patience days, weeks, months, or years ago.
I got significantly better and so can you. Keep trying. Do not just sit there. Try different medications (under professional advice/supervision), see different specialists, read different books, talk to different people; never give up and never think or believe that nothing can help. Part of our disorder, a symptom of it, is that our judgement is clouded. We think we are helpless when, in reality, we are not. We think there is no hope, when in reality, there is. Slap yourself awake. Hope does exist. You can get better. Never give up. You can do this. Yes, you read that right. YOU CAN DO THIS.
