Since I was about 10 I have had on and off again severe depression. It took me so long to even admit that I had a problem. I just thought this horrible pain and emptiness was what everyone went through. I was convinced about a year ago to get some help, and today my therapist told me I don't need her anymore because I am doing so well. It felt so good to be the one who put in the work to get better and it worked. I just can't believe I wasted so many years feeling worthless when I could have been proud of myself and genuinely happy to be me. MLIG
