Hi Willa,

That’s a great question, I ask myself the same question everyday. I would say to appreciate the things you take for granite and acknowledge that it could always be worse. 11 years ago I had a bad concussion that resulted in permanent brain damage. Since then I’ve suffered from “mental fogginess” that detaches me from reality, sort of like a dream state (very hard to explain). This resulted in serious depression and I was unable to obtain true happiness because I would constantly think that my life would be so much better if I didn’t have these problems. Despite the mental fogginess I managed to go to college and graduate. As of 4 years ago my symptoms got much worse and my intelligence was greatly effected. I now have a college degree that is pretty much useless because of the loss of intelligence, and I walk around in utter disgust of what my life has become. My point is, I was depressed before I had the loss of inteligence, but if I could have the brain I had 4 years ago back I would be immensely happy. I didn’t know what I had until it was gone. So appreciate the things that you have right now, acknowledge and hold on to all of the good in you’re life. I hope this reply helps you. I joined this forum this morning in search of help, so you’re not alone.


Best Regards

Willa

Hi Willa,

Well if you don’t have brain damage, that’s one thing to be thankful for. I think the key to happiness is finding a purpose in life, something I need to figure out as well. I have some people in my life but often I wish I didn’t because I know that my problems are a burden on them.

Best
