I've suffered through depression for most of my life without even knowing. I didn't even know what depression even was I thought that everyone felt the way I did, I thought it was normal. I didn't find out until my school had a suicide and depression awareness week just before I had an appointment with a psychologist regarding my ADHD. After talking with her she confirmed it, and a couple weeks later I was prescribed an antidepressant. I don't want anyone else to go through life not knowing what depression is or if they have it or not.
