This is written on depression and how one feels locked inside. So many go through this and don't realize it.
Lost in Oneself
September 22, 2011
By Rose Marie Rideout
It’s a dark day as I feel I am fighting,
Who am I fighting, so many,
I am fighting a Mom, A Dad, a wife, husband,
a sister, brother a Friend,
Aunt, Uncle and cousin & many more.
I cannot see through the crowd,
I am cornered, above I see a lone star.
I am lost and lonely.
What am I searching for,
I’m searching for myself, but I am lost.
I feel the mist upon my face,
Is it tears, but I see a rainbow.
Why am I lost in myself.
I need to break out and run,
Where would I go without you.
Without you I am nothing.
You have made me who I am.
You are my life, my every smile,
You are my reason for living & laughing,
Come to me, be with me,
Together we can break through,
Together we can live a great life,
Together we can win.

|depressive states are natural as long as we don't dwell within them ... sometimes, we can come out of a depression more coherent and motivated particularity if our loved ones support us ...for those who cannot, outside help should be pursued ...|

|I know our family is prone to this debilitating disease and yet we struggle to deal with it and help others to do so as well. I hope to see you soon cuz, been too long.

|Rosie, I hate to think that this is truly how you feel now or, in truth, at any time. How difficult it is, if not impossible to rely on someone else, even one as loved as your husband, for your happiness. Yes, another person may temporally make you happy, but to be truly happy one must count on ones self. And, guess what? At times there is nothing we can do for ourselves to obtain continual happiness. So, in closing, my dear far northern friend, be happy!

|"I need to break out and run" describes this darkness so well, as does your entire piece, Rose. A difficult subject that you handled well. ~Hugs, Elizabeth|

|I know what depression is, because I have it from time to time, but I choose not to wallow in it. Don't like being sad all the time; I'd much rather be happy! Great writing, Rose; well done!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn.

|Awesome yet lonely in despair. Have faith that a break though will come taking one day at a time. Confidence will get you through then you'll never be lost within one's self. Thanks for sharing so a great poem Rose! :)

|"...Without you I am nothing." I'm not a doctor and I've never suffered depression, at least that I was aware of, but this statement would scare me. It's an often heard catchphrase, but to me it's like giving up. I rely heavily upon my sweetie and she is everything to me, but I like to think that I am strong…. that I could and would survive on my own. She’s important to me, but I am far more than NOTHING without her.
Depression, or not, it’s my belief that it’s critical that we recognize our own importance to the entire equation. To my way of thinking, belief in yourself is the key to salvation from this dreaded malady.
Then again, there is always the bottle…. Or pills.
Great write Rose, like it lots. No matter the answer, you've certainly called attention to the question. Thanks Dick
