I have had depression since early childhood. Often when I tell people, you can see their entire countenance change. I have struggled with anxiety, eating disorders, I was misdiagnosed for 7 years as Bipolar 2, and I have treatment resistant depression.
I had my suicide planned out in July 2019 and my husband found me, pills in hand, and got me checked in to a mental health facility.
When I was released 2 weeks later, I refused to stay quiet, and as I publicly (in my little network) talked about it, I had a lot of people treat me differently and walk out of my life.
