Self-portrait by nine9nine9 Self-portrait by nine9nine9
(Had to pull this one down and reload it due to a technical issue -- sorry.)

I created this a number of years ago when I was consumed with loneliness, despair, and depression -- much like now, lol; actually not like now at all.

I have been through the throes of depression and I have news for anyone who thinks it will never end; it does and it will; have faith in your doctor, the drugs, your therapist and the support of your family and friends; if at all possible try to eat healthy and (this was key for me) exercise your ass off.

There is a light at the end of this dark tunnel; and beyond the light is a return to normalcy.

Oh my! I just woke up to this wonderful surprise of getting a DD! This is by far my most personal piece, done in a time of great despair. It was great therapy for me to create this. I didn't realize it at the time but doing this artwork was part of my recovery from depression -- such is the power of art; ultimately it helped me to get better. Thanks so much Rottenragamuffin and ^thelasth0pe!
