Most likely this will culminate and explode. Sarah will get into a huge fight with Jack or find some other way to lash out at him for all these wrongs that her unwell mind convinced her that he is responsible for.

Fast-forward to 1999. My husband and I were in San Francisco when my older brother called, and said that our mom had tried to kill her husband.

Know that you are not crazy. Depression is a real illness and should be afforded the same respect as any other disease. It is your body telling you that something is wrong, whether it is a chemical imbalance in the brain or unresolved emotions. Depression is your body’s way of telling you that it is becoming overwhelmed and needs help.

Speak with your doctor about any adverse medical conditions that you’ve struggled with, whether it is an actual disease or a mysterious symptom that has been bothering you for some time. Most doctors will work with you to create a personal health plan of action that will serve as a guide for you as you take all recommended steps to eliminate the symptom through a healthy lifestyle change.
