My Two Black Dogs one Metaphor one literal

I totally identify with what Glen says here.

I have two Black Dogs in my life, one that wakes me up in the morning one that keeps me awake at night.

‘The Black Dog’ is a term that Winston Churchill used to describe his depression, it’s a metaphor for a disorder that casts a shadow that is constantly lurking in the background.
My other Black Dog is bright eyed and full of enthusiasm for me, I walk him and he’s always happy to see me, I talk to him and he patiently listens giving the impression he’s never judging just happy to be hanging out.
I’ve struggled with depression for years  I’m in a much better place than I’ve been for years but as I’ve said it’s shadow is constantly in the background.
This past year has been hard mentally and physically, I’ve faced challenges brought on in part from my own neglect of my physical problems.
