I've been thinking about sharing my journey into darkness and light for a long time. It's taken years for me to understand it, not completely, but at least to the point where I know that by sharing this I may be able to help at least one other person.
I am writing about what most people don't know about me and will be surprised to learn. I suffered from depression. Depression that had me seriously contemplating suicide on multiple occasions. It was a dark time in my life, but I never saw it as dark until I was able to see the light.
