It feels like a life time ago that I was just living to die. The shackles I wore were so heavy, nothing seemed possible. Thanks to the support of my friends, family, and yes, you all, every step gets easier. I can now recognize when I’m experiencing depression/anxiety based on past factors rather than the here and now. I can feel the OCD pushing and pulling at my insides. I once felt that what I lived was normal. I was wrong.
