This is a story I read while doing some research for one of the responsibilities I have been asked to oversee at Celebrate Recovery at Lenexa Baptist Church’s Mental Health Initiative.
I don’t want that to sound like I am doing this just to help others or I have no background in mental health. Not by a long shot, I am helping myself more than anyone with depression, anxiety and self-worth issues. So, I qualify as someone who can relate.
Derek Powazek comes to terms with his lifelong companion, depression: “I cannot keep doing the things I always have done. I can’t let depression define me, I can’t fight it, I can’t pretend it away. I have choose to do something else.”
If you would like to participate in my research please fill out the form below. I will get back with you and we can chat about how we can work together. Thanks for reading my posts.
