“I was always panicked, my thoughts would constantly race, I couldn’t sleep, and I could never calm down.”

“Depression has impacted my life in many ways. My self-worth was nonexistent. I felt like a bad mom most of the time.”

“There are many challenges to face when you have depression. Getting help is the biggest one.  Seeking treatment means you have to admit to yourself that you have a problem. Denial is so much easier, but facing your fears is the first step in healing.”
