I’m going to tell you the story of me, a story that is intertwined with an illness called depression. It’s a story I share with millions but we all have our own unique plot points, just different enough to make us feel isolated by our experience.
I will tell you how I have adapted, functioned, failed, and adapted again. I will tell you how I tell people, and what happens next.
I will tell you how we can get better at helping people who are struggling, in our friendship groups and families, in the workplace, and in our community. Then I’m going to ask you to do just that.
I have not survived against all odds. I am not a beacon of courage. I have not triumphed over adversity. This is my story.
