Depression doesn’t care and it makes you not care, even though you do still care. It doesn’t discriminate. It can happen to anyone. Use your voice for those who can’t. We can never stop fighting.

Depression doesn’t care who you are

Or what you do, or say

It doesn’t take vacations

Or coffee breaks

It strikes without warning

And sinks its claws into your mind, body, and soul

The talons of apathy and despair

Can bring the strongest of us

To their knees

I've suffered from depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem for many years. When my son was diagnosed with Autism, my depression took a turn for the worse. At the age of 39, I've opened up a new lease on life by learning to love myself and finding positive ways to cope with life's difficulties through blogging, fitness, photography, writing, and the arts. This is just one personal journey of healing and finding oneself.
