      I got diagnosed at 4 with depression and anxiety and I'm 18. It's been awhile that I've been not quite struggling but having to deal with not being 'normal'

        @Phoinyxisnotonfire I actually got diagnosed with anxiety at maybe 18 cus I couldn’t even leave the house it got so and I’m 20 now and got diagnosed a few months ago for depression, I’ve been struggling not feeling normal my whole life I knew I had depression and anxiety I was jus so scared to tell anyone until now cus I realized how badly I needed help, I still struggle talking about it and I still haven’t told people I’m close with, I’ve always been scared people would think I was weird or judge me if I told them especially about my depression

          @Nal I find it helps being open about it.

      I come from a long line of people who “came out miserable,” and I’ve been depressed all my life. It can feel really isolating
