    So, I was diagnosed with depression

    and anxiety in December of 2013. I knew I had had it for long before being diagnosed with it, I was just so scared to tell people how I felt. I always had something/someone to blame. Of course these things I blamed my depression and anxiety on were contributors, I kept pushing...

    Depressions Happy Ending

    If you were to actually see, I would seem like I have a perfect life. My parents are still together and they do not fight. I am not abused. I do not do drug and I have quite a few friends. This seems all great, but I am a very odd child. I see things different and I do things...

    Learning How To Cope
