“I’ve battled depression and anxiety since I was 13 and it’s never-ending.
I started cutting at 14, a bad addiction, and attempted suicide at 28; and it’s only by a miracle I’m here after what I tried.
Getting the proper help and taking TIME is what got me past all things, but it does live with you always. You always must have courage.
I’m now a substance abuse counselor who is studying psychology myself. I want to be that understanding, non-judge mental face on the other side.
Day to day I sink and rise fighting myself inside. But one day at a time I get by. I appear okay but my mind plays games telling me lies. But I’ll be alright. I fight.”
