Where to begin! What a wonderful cause, to lock arms and bring awareness end the stigma surrounding depression, and mental illness. I've suffered with depression my whole life, as did both my parents, and siblings. I have worked hard to overcome it, with many therapies and self care. Depression is still a dragon I fight back every day. Anxiety and chronic pain as well. At 56, I'm just getting on top of it, and want to love others after coming out of one of the worst periods of darkness ever in 2013. I learned a ton, and am blessed to be alive. I lost my brother to suicide in 2014.
