Be strong when you can Misty. For me, the hardest thing was admitting to myself depression is more than a state of mind. It's a physical and biologically documented mental health (hate that term) issue. So when you can be strong no longer and you can't think your way out of a hopeless state of mind - accept that you've possibly changed your brain chemistry with a persistent state of mind. And talk to your doctor, take any meds and see any therapist regularly that they ask you to. For you.
