In my first video for Libero I talk about the main problem I had growing up with depression: realizing and accepting that I actually had it.
A huge part of why it took me over a decade to go to a doctor was because I didn’t understand mental illness at all. I never heard anyone talk about it.
I didn’t realize I was ill; I thought I was just weak. I also didn’t want to be “different” anymore than I already was! I talk about all the reasons it took me SO long to ask for help and why I felt the need to hide it from everyone, including myself.
