Depression Poem

A Family Coping With Depression

My mother had never shown a hint of depression until a number of triggers, including a death in the family, led to a severe depressive episode. Out of the blue it was a massive struggle for the family to get our head around and help Mum through the illness. She is now out on the other side, thankfully. I wrote this poem at the time to try to understand what was happening, and I'd like to share it in case anyone else is in a similar situation. My father was brilliant throughout the experience.
