The Depression monster was lurking in the corner again. She tried to shrug it off but she could still hear it’s whispering voice. She paused frowning over the questions Depression was raising then pressed on. Yet the doubts still swirled in her head and she was forced to stop.

Depression consumed her, filling her with a hopelessness and darkness that weighted too much to escape from.
