Stop Hiding, Start Fighting

For years, I've struggled with depression, anxiety, OCD, and eating disorders. Wow. You know? As a writer, that has to be the weakest sentence I've ever written. Let me rephrase that: Since puberty, I've been overwhelmed by feelings of crushing hopelessness, fear and panic. Time and again, as recently as a few months ago, depression …
