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.”
I have dealt with social anxiety disorder, PTSD, and major depression.
I promise it gets better. Every day keep trying, even if it’s something as small as stepping outside your door and looking around and saying “hi” to the people you see outside.
