The Effect of Depression on Grief
The relationship with Duncan finally came to an end.
I was relieved, but also left broken and hurt.
The grieving process followed, which only enhanced my depression.
I didn’t want to do anything and I didn’t want to discuss what had happened. I was so embarrassed by all I’d endured.
I was happiest in a darkened room where I was by myself. I buried my head in books or watching hours of numbness television. Often I just wanted to sleep and escape the pain and betrayal I felt.
I was grieving and one of the steps of grief is depression.
However, this step is only intensified when you are already depressed.
The time had come to get help.
