For people who live with depression, this mental illness can always be a part of their life and a part of their identity. Swimmer Michael Phelps knows this well.

In an interview with People, Phelps told the publication that “depression is something that will always be part of my life — it’s part of who I am.” Phelps has been open with his struggles with depression, including his experience with suicidal ideation.

In the January 2018 annual conference of the Kennedy Forum, Phelps talked about how unmanaged depression and anxiety have impacted his life, which affected him negatively while he publicly seemed like he was just an extremely successful Olympian.
