In case any Beyond Blue readers are camping out in the Black Hole, convinced that they will never ever have a different mailing address, I wanted to share Michelle’s letter with you, so that you have at least one thing in your self-esteem file to read until you get your letters from your friends. Because her words also apply to you:
Now, repeat after me (Ecoutez et repetez):
THIS, TOO, SHALL PASS.
I am going to look back on this terrible nightmare and thank God that it is behind me. When I do, I’ll be amazed at my own strength and determination that got me through. It’ll be impossible to imagine how I was able to do it.
On that day, I will raise a flute of non-alcoholic Dom Perignon and make a toast to the new era A.D. (after depression).
