"After years of feeling like I need to be better, stronger, healthier, and in control, I now know I am enough." -Member of MyDepressionTeam
Members of MyDepressionTeam experience the burden of depression physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Sometimes we strive to appear 'fine' to avoid the stigma of mental illness. Other times, we experience relief and support from peers who've been in our shoes.
"I'm getting out of the rat race. I'm not hiding my condition anymore. If I'm struggling, I'm going to reach out. Hearing from others with depression has taught me that I have to prioritize ME."
-Member of MyDepressionTeam
Here are recent conversations from MyDepressionTeam:
Woke up super early, which is really nothing new. Insomnia is a real pain. Doing a house sitting job that at least gives me some solitude which I desperately need for a week. Grateful I didn't wake up anxiety-ridden today!
