By Lora L. Young
On the heels of depression is the fear of a return visit. The hope it won't return, and anger at the very thought of ever having to deal with it again.
The fear can become a friend. The hope a bit of sunshine. The anger your strongest strength. The road, though not always smooth, does lead to comfort and peace - even moments of elated joy!
