This blog has been instrumental in helping me work through my struggles with depression and social anxiety. Some of the posts that I am most proud of – the ones I was most fearful of sharing – are the ones that explore my journey through depression to my current state of contentment. Rather than create a mere category for these posts, I wanted to give them a place of honor on my blog, to make it easier for readers to find them and follow this adventure.
As the years have gone by, I’ve written so much, I had to split it into 4 sub-pages:
Moments of Truth: the post that started it all, that gave me the courage to admit I had ever suffered from depression.
Most Frequently Referenced: the posts I cite most often in this blog
A Little Bit of Everything: a collection of posts that cover a wide variety of incidents but all revolve around my ongoing struggle to integrate my mental health ups and downs into my identity
The Great Depression of 2017-2018: As this was the defining aspect to the second half of 2017 and first half of 2018, and as this depression changed everything, almost killed me, it deserves a special spot. I worked through a LOT of shit during this one.
