I am a 27 year old female and have been struggling with chronic depressive and panic disorder for as long as I can remember. That’s at least what doctors have diagnosed me with. Three weeks ago I chased three bottles of prescription medication with a bottle of Jack Daniels and went to bed. I didn’t feel strong enough to keep trying at my life. I had what I now call ‘The Great Sadness’ (The Shack) for about 12 years.
A lifetime of struggle with mental illness, diagnosed Social Anxiety Disorder, Manic Depression, Chronic Depression, and Schizophrenia. Hiding the things that should have been shared with therapists and others led to repeated “mental breakdowns.”
