Defeat ????

Blog Post created by OldBones-Larry on Mar 7, 2019

I climbed over the edge of the Depression Gorge a few minutes ago.

It was a long climb up with many falls back down to the bottom. A voice kept whispering that I should just give in and stay at the bottom.

I think you know that I couldn't do that.

I am looking across the desert to get my bearings and will begin the journey back to the mountain soon.

I am still not "cured" as a lot of people think I should be.

Depression is like addiction in many ways. It is a thing that can come back to bother you again and again. 

Though I can honestly say that all my addictions are in my past, I still stay vigilant against them.

Depression is the same, though not as easy to guard against.

I have battled with this for many years and have been so far down that I was ready to give up many times.

I always found the strength to fight my way back up from the depths though. I never took that final step that the inner demons were so wanting me to take.

I will continue the fight this time as I always have before.

I will get back to the mountain and mount another caravan across the desert of NML as I vowed to The Old Goat that I would do.

Travel strong my fellow trekkers.

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
