I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY MORE THAN 20 YEARS AGO.
I had felt so badly for so many years, probably since I was a teen or even a child, that's when I finally got help. When I finally went to see a doctor, I knew I was going to be diagnosed as DEPRESSED. I was relieved and terrified to finally be told what was HAPPENING TO ME. I was relieved to know that I wasn't "nuts." Something in me gave a big sigh of relief. Now I knew why I'd spent almost all my life not enjoying things like other people, having panic attacks, and just wanting to isolate. It was also good to hear from someone that there was hope and a possible future outside of allowing how I was feeling to control me. I am glad I decided to get help. Life is good.
