In January, I was diagnosed with major depression and couple of anxiety disorders but I have know for long time that my struggles where not because I didn't suck it up, my issues where real! Everyday life was/is challenge but I continue to heal with therapy and medication. I didn't want people to know about my mental illness because they stereo type you, act different to you or they don't believe you. I have learned that people are scared of anything that society says is not normal and my friends have been the outcast the misunderstood and the strays (my animals), their the sun that shines on me while society points their fingers at me, their the reason I smile and haven't given up. I fight depression everyday that A**Hole wont leave me alone!
