Kim

Health Activist

2 years ago, I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety and Depression. Part of my healing process was to write in my journal all the darkness I was going through. As I continued to write for personal reasons, people started coming to me and asking me how I felt. I couldn't explain it, and they didn't understand. I started blogging about depression and mental illness, to assist my family, my friends, or others suffering to understand, or at least grasp that depression is a real illness and not all in my head.
