After the recent election, I fell into a deep depression. At least my third experience with depression, but this one was triggered by someone, by a disastrous situation outside of my personal life. Had no idea how to cope. Felt powerless. Then, I discovered Medium! Writing brought me back to the present, gave me a focus, awakened an old passion. Now, I am using my writing to fight what triggered my depression. I am still scared as hell, still sad and disappointed and angry. But I look forward to writing. I look forward to making a difference.
