No Longer Using the “D” Word

Our story changes quickly as we heal and grow so in the spirit of redefining what always was, I have decided to define personal experiences with “depression” as “not quite ok-ness” from this point forth.

I have tried to define it in the past, what with me being content and happy and excited about life and all that but there isn’t a word I have come across for describing the process of learning, growing, sometimes feeling a tinge of grief but mostly being absolutely flipping fine and standing tall and happy …. so I made one up.

Feel free to borrow it yourself, “not quite ok-ness”.  If you have a more appropriate and non made up word, please feel free to share.
