I am 20 years old, fighting depression since I was about 11. Throughout middle and high school, I didn't know what was wrong with me, frustrating friends and family without knowing what was even happening. I was diagnosed just before I turned 18. My best friend stuck with me, even when she was so mad and upset at how I was acting, she stayed, and she even saved my life at one point. Sometimes that's all you need, is that one person to help you through. I'm feeling much better today, more positive about life, and feeling more and more how I felt when I was a kid. Sometimes it slips, but I bounce back faster and stronger each time. Keep strong. You are not alone.
I cannot even begin to tell you how happy this post makes me. My boyfriend is struggling with depression and i have tried to be there for him through all of it. This gives me hope that he will one day be better.
