Tonya Ingram's Letter to Her Depression Says All the Things We Wish We Could

Spoken Word Artist Tonya Ingram recorded this open letter to her depression, and those who have suffered from the often debilitating illness will definitely recognize the truth in her words.

"Dear depression, we go way back," Ingram begins the powerful message. Throughout the video she highlights the chronic course of the condition, the feelings of helplessness, and the relentless negative intrusive thoughts all part and parcel of struggling with depression.

Ingram ends the video on an encouraging note, however, for both herself and other sufferers. "Dare yourself, extraordinary human, to run into joy screaming," she urges. Her words serve as an important reminder that you are not your illness.
