Recovery isn't a straight line,
It's jagged,
It folds back in on itself,
It's painful,
It's lonely,
It's frightening.
But somewhere along the way,
there are pockets of hopefulness
to help you climb back out of the hole.
And all along the way you ARE making progress, even if it doesn't feel like it.
(Sometimes it's another person like your therapist or GP who sees the progress you are making).
