Depression and I go way back. Just like you learn the ins and outs of friends and the nuances of family, you learn a thing or two about depression over the years. Fortunately, there's one thing depression couldn't hide from me - its weaknesses.
Knowing where and how to hit depression where it hurts is unique to everyone. For me, it was realizing that I HAD depression, but it definitely didn't have me (and it never will!)
What that meant was that there was always a thing or two I could do to get a hold of things, even when I was at my worst. Naturally, I love these little lifesavers with all my heart, and so there was only one thing to do - baptize my candles in their honor!
