carororo your boat

This is pretty personal for me and I’m a little nervous to post it, but making it was therapeutic.  

I was diagnosed with clinical depression when I was young (it runs in my family) and throughout my life I have encountered a lot of misinformation about it.  There is definitely a stigma against mental illnesses because they are invisible.  People tell you you should just try harder and think positively and get over it, but depression is a disorder that just doesn’t work that way.  

I hope that any of you out there suffering from it, or anxiety, or anything else like that gets the help you need.  Talk to someone if you can, make a doctor’s appointment, research your options.  The first step is the hardest, but it’s the most important one.
