This month, March of 2020, is the twenty year anniversary of when I got help for my mental health issues for the first time. I was twenty one years old at the time (way back in March of 2000). I had been dealing with on and off severe depression for many years before then.
Getting the help wasn't so easy for me, as I was scared to get the help for the longest time.
However, I'm glad I got the help when I did. So many people with mental illness never get the help and go through their whole lives fighting depression on their own, without the help of therapists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals.
And although the road to recovery wasn't smooth for me, I'd likely be doing pretty bad till this day if I had never gotten the help. Also, I've been doing quite well emotionally for quite some time.
