    Not sure where to post this.. so i'm going to post it here.. hope some of you can relate.

    When winter seeps into a mind,

    Its cold anesthetising touch

    Freezes all hope that lies inside,

    No love, no joy, shall matter much.


    Its bleakness like a blanket lays

    Across a consciousness, unheeded

    Barren land it leaves behind,

    No gentle thoughts of happiness are seeded.


    Force of will cannot lift the weight

    Its heavy burden must be borne,

    To live each day in this sorry state

    Is a torment all its own.


    Hope is crushed in the claws of a demon who

    Nameless and void in the darkness grows,

    Sucking the life from the one whom is afflicted

    Til nothing is left, All is morose.


    Saints and sinners both alike

    Suffer in its crippling, stifling hold,

    Yet inner strength, a flame that’s flickering

    Battles on against the cold.

    You've very effectively captured some truths not least the true face of this illness.
    I used to feel exactly like that but I would like to add that there is always hope and a way out, but perhaps for me it's easy to say so.

    Granted it's slightly on the dark side.. lol and I will probably write something more positive one day about my experience. :) here's to the future and all it holds.
