A Reflection- From Depression To Life!
Five years ago I had a horrible accident at work which has left me with a permanent back injury. I spent the next two years fighting for my insurance rights and a settlement. Unfortunately during those two years, I lost my new vehicle and my house because I did not have the income to keep them while I fought for my rights( which I finally won). Through it all I was fortunate to have a loving spouse who was by my side the whole way-and still is!
I spent the next two years in a state of depression. not really from losing everything but from not being able to move forward..to work... to be a productive part of society. I have worked my entire life, from the age of fifteen until I was injured at fourty-nine. I enjoyed providing for my family. I loved playing sports and doing things with friends. I loved my life. I felt my injury had stripped that away from me and found it totally impossible to be the person I knew I was on the inside. My depression took ahold of me and I became a recluse. Always coming up with an excuse to tell my friends why I didn't want to hang out with them or even leave the house. I kept telling myself there had to be a way to be productive again. So I searched and searched until one day I stumbled upon it a year ago.
I found Wealthy Affiliate....
At last there was a way to move forward....a light at the end of the tunnel.My life could move forward. So I spent about a week reading all the pros and cons online--the praise and the criticisms until I finally decided to join as a starter member. Well that only lasted a week-I went Premium and have not looked back since. I was amazed at the people here. Their warmth and generosity helped me through the depression and has allowed me to become myself again! By building my own online business I now feel like a productive part of society and am back to being my open, friendly and happy self! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your kindness and help during this past year and have been paying it forward as often as possible! Thank you my friends!!!
