Today, I still struggle with my depression. It’s not as bad as when I first started showing symptoms but I still find myself a bit down here and there. My current treatment is taking anti-depressants and they keep me in check. I used to think that I would never be happy again or live a normal life but now I can say I am doing what I once saw as unthinkable. I’ve changed so much through my depression and seeing it all from the beginning to the present just makes me happy that I have people there for me, people who want me to get better, making sure I’m getting the right treatment and always being there. I now know that I can still be happy and live life without hold- backs.
