Depression and anxiety did not affect me until I was in my early twenties. Since both of these problems run in my family I may have always carried them with me. However depression and anxiety slowly crept into my life when my ex-fiance broke up with me shortly before our scheduled wedding. Since then I have battled confidence issues, depression, anxiety, and many feelings of worthlessness.
About five years have passed since my heart was shattered. I am just now almost fully recovered. I want to feel confident again. I do not want to be depressed anymore. I am willing to do what I need to do to feel alive again.
