Smile I found my reason to live - March 7th 2011, 09:07 PM

My depression started in August. It's from having no friends, being an outcast, and being bullied everyday. Everything spiraled downward from the day I...broke. But finally, after over 5 different meds, lots of therapy, and two mental hospitals, I'm feeling better. Sometimes I actually feel...happy. Happy. Such a foreign word to me now. Even though I'm getting better, I still ask myself, What's my reason to live? No, I'm not suicidal anymore. But I still don't know what reason I have to live. Last Friday I found it.
My sister is pregnant.
I haven't been this happy since my depression started. This will be my 7th niece or nephew. And so I told myself, you have to be there for this baby. You're going to hold that baby in your arms. You're going to watch that baby grow up. You're going to be a great aunt someday. I've never even considered suicide since I found out the news. I never knew something so simple could mend my heart back together. This unborn child is saving my life.
For once in 7 months, I'm happy.
I'm happy.
I'm happy.
I'm happy.
And I have a reason to live.
I feel so...ALIVE.
