I have struggled with anxiety and depression for most of my life. I can’t really remember a time when I didn’t. There are many days that it literally takes every amount of strength I have to get out of bed. Anxiety makes it hard to leave my house and that can accelerate my depression as I feel guilty for not going out and doing the things I should be doing. Sometimes it feels like there is only one way out of this pain, but I am trying to stay strong for my family. Stay strong and hold on.. Even if it’s the last thread… Hold on!
