Reminder: I Am Not Alone

Please welcome first-time contributor Amanda Sapp, a 36-year-old single mom residing in Alma, GA. Amanda has suffered with severe depression for many years and was recently diagnosed with Bipolar II Disorder. She is struggling to accept the life changing diagnosis and to adjust to new meds and a new normal.

About this photo: “I took this photo while on vacation in Pine Mountain with the one person who believed in me and loved me when I wasn’t well enough to believe in and love myself. It reminds me that no matter how much my illness makes me isolate that I am not alone. It reminds me that with the right support, I am strong enough to keep fighting.”

    1. Thanks Sam. It was a devastating diagnosis for sure but I know that I have to find a way to accept it, live with, and stay healthy. Thank you for the kind words.

  2. I love butterflies. They are fragile, but determined creatures. Having faith in God, the One who heals, will help you. He has radically changed my life for the better. 2 Corinthians 5:17 is a verse I like to call “The butterfly verse”. It says that if a man is in Christ (has accepted Him), he is a new creation. Slowly, He will help you learn to live life effectively with Bipolar as He has done with me and autism..and my mom’s recent death.

  3. Very honest and powerful words. I’m sure your soul friend will be as touched by this as others who owe a debt of gratitude to the ones that stuck by them when they no longer believed in themselves. Stunning photo.
