Having depression and anxiety isn't like being sad or nervous. Some people don’t believe DAS is actually a mental illness but it is.
My DAS (Depression, Anxiety, and Stress) started during my... More > time of illness. I lost all meaning to my life. I couldn't smile or laugh or enjoy myself because the negative thoughts in my head wouldn't let me. I saw everything wrong with me and I felt like everyone around me was just out to get me. If I was hurting inside I would cry myself to sleep. I didn't know what I was doing, which direction to turn, what decisions to make; I just wanted to curl up and die.
But times did get better and even though I am still fighting to be positive in any way I can, I have come through it. I’m also thankful that my family was there for me through my hard times, taking care of me when I was unwell. Without them I wouldn't be the more positive person I am today.
