My story

Dedication: Anyone who struggles with depression.

I personally struggle with bipolar depression and severe anxiety. I was diagnosed about 3 years ago. I was 13. I was in and out of behavioral health facilities for 2 years. I have been a year clean from self harm and hospitals and all that. I still struggle sometimes but I know that it’s gonna get better. No matter how dark it gets. I was always afraid to tell people about my story with depression because I was afraid of getting judged. But now I don’t care anymore because by sharing my story it might help just one person. And that’s all I have ever wanted, was to help people. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this. I really appreciate it.
