Name’s Jessica. I’m 26.
I became an angst teenage and started to experience depression. The way I coped with depression was to drown myself in a book and refused to surface for air until I felt better. I didn’t read the Harry Potter series- I lived them. I cried with them, I prayed with them, I fought with them, and I died with them.Anyone with depression can tell you that the weight of it is paralyzing. As years came and gone, I got caught up in work and the life of an adult. The terror about depression is the darkness is inside of you working its way out.
There are times when I feel like a stranger among my own thoughts. It changes your actions, creates a different person and causes you to feel isolated and alone.
