I just wanted to make a positive post to hopefully encourage people that things can and do get better.
I joined DS in 2012 because of severe depression and anxiety. At the time I could not work due to these issues, I lacked higher education, and I had no friends. I really had no life except existing in depression.
Fast forward to this year. I graduated with one college degree, I have a part time job, a second job which will turn into a full time career next year when I get my second degree (and the job will pay for me to continue education), I have made friends, and I have a decent social life.
My depression and anxiety are not gone, but finding the right therapy (DBT) and medications helped me out a lot. Along with sheer will and determination. I wish I was cured, but I am continuing to get better every day.
There is hope. It took me forever to get to this place, but it happened. In 2012 I felt no one could be worse off than me, and here I am doing okay. The same can happen for you!
