I too struggle with depression and anxiety. It sucks. Most days are ok to great but some are black and dark. But that is ok.
Because it’s ok to suffer with a mental illness.
It’s similar to having a bad back, or a cold, or a insulin deficiency. But it’s in your brain. And I don’t mean like a “it’s only in your head” kinda thing. I mean “there is an imbalance in your chemicals” kinda thing.
This is more of a confessional than a rally to drop a stigma. But if you do have one, please drop it. You’ll help a quarter or so of the people you will meet and thus make you a nicer person than you are already.
