With depression your life gets derailed. That is what I was thinking of and also another meaning is that a friend of mine is a train conductor, he was coming back from MSP and as he turned a corner the lights were shining on a man and he didn’t move out. This friend of ours didn’t take it real well. Life sneaks up on you and before it is too late, you are too far gone. I would educate people to stay on the meds and stay on track. I think about the meds for a lot of people the first 2 or 3 meds don’t work. I thank God that the ones that I tried the first time worked because waiting the 2 weeks alone is tough to work but if you had to wait 2 to 3 months would be bad. [To get through the first 2-3 weeks] you see little glimmers of hope, even if for just a split second. That little glimmer is what you hang onto. And that next day the glimmer is 3 seconds and it is gone and then 5 seconds. And then the depression lessens and you can see the good stuff more often. I know a gal, she was talking about that with her anxiety, she woke up and the elephant off her back but then as soon as she thought about it, it was back. I told her that was her glimmer and sure enough in time the glimmers lasted.
