I’ve been struggling with depression since I was 13 years old. I’m in college now, and entering into the world of psychiatric meds for the first time. I’m afraid and confused, but hopeful.
I’ve been writing in my journal as a way to untangle, understand, and cope with my feelings since middle school, and now I am ready to share those feelings with the world. I’ve often turned to the internet for advice and to try and find something, somewhere, that shows I’m not alone in my feelings. I don’t think mental illness (mental health?) is something people should be quiet about.
If anyone reads my blog and feels some reassurance that they’re not alone, it will have been a success. But, hey, even if not, it will still have helped me, and that’s important too.
