I have suffered from depression, PPD, PP-OCD/OCD, and anxiety for a very long time. The sad part is that there are so many people like me out there, but because they feel it is a weakness, they suffer alone in silence. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With medication and a good doctor and therapist, there is light at the end of the darkness. Please support Mental Health Awareness Week, whether it is this week or past – mental illness doesn’t last just one week of the year.
Look around you, and remember that 1 in 3 suffer in silence. Could this be you?
Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD and panic attacks are NOT a sign of weakness. They are physical & medical illnesses. Did you know that 1 in each 3 of us will go through this at some point in our lives? Share the support! Let those who struggle know they’re not alone, that they are loved. ♥
