I was scared. My anxiety was through the roof along with my depression. I cried every night and every day. There was something wrong with me and it seemed like nothing was wrong with me – that’s how bad my stress and anxiety were.

She passed away to a tragedy due to the flu and then 4 months later I lost my mother. That’s when she diagnosed me with depression and anxiety attacks. Ever since then, my anxiety and depression come and go but it’s not as bad as it used to be. I can’t control when I’m going to pass away, but I can control my anxiety and depression. I recently stopped taking medicine. I either listen to the listen to music, talk to my 14-year-old daughter or I write down what’s on my mind. I am going to get better.
