to understand your mental illness? I have had depression and anxiety all of my life, however I was not diagnosed with it until I was 19 years old. That was nearly 3 years ago. At first I was lead to believe that medication was not really something you stay on, but it is used to get you up from the hard times. Kind of like once you feel better it is alright to stop taking them kind of thing. of course that did not work and I have been on and off medication for the past few years in an attempt to be able to manage my life. I am really starting to understand my illness I think, but it is still a daily battle. And I often beat myself up for not being farther along after knowing about it for almost 3 years now. I was just kinda wondering how well other people feel they understand their mental illnesses and how long it took people to learn how to manage it and live a ""Normal" life?
