One of my favorite bloggers is Dr. Sana Johnson-Quijada. Her blog is http://friendtoyourself.com. She is about loving kindness. Yesterday, Saturday, she asked what would a brain illness look like? I asked her if she included depression in that question and she said yes. Here is my response to her question.
We think we can heal it by dealing with it in the rational,
With pharmacologic intervention and lots of psycho-babble.
This thinking is myopic and leaves outs so much
This dis-ease is historical and responds better to touch.
Because when we say that this dis-ease is in the brain
We close ourself off to the real holder of the pain.
I am ill because of wounds, wounds deep to the self
That cant be treated from the outside
By taking something off of a shelf.
I truly would like to know your thoughts. That is what this site is about. As they say, “one alcoholic helping another alcoholic.”
123 Permission is something your Mom signed a slip for. Forgiveness is something we can all give, we just dont know it.
