I Talked About Depression on a Site with 25M Monthly Visitors

I used to be so scared of talking about depression because I didn’t want people to take pity on me. Depression and mental health is a taboo topic, and many are still unaware of what it is and what it does. While I still have the courage and strength to do it, I want to be one of the many who share the word. I want to fight. I want to be a medium for those who are also fighting this battle. I want more people to become more aware of how it affects people, how it feels to be a vessel of an invisible illness, and how it feels to be broken from the inside.

Today, I did it. I published about my how depression affected me on a platform with international reach and an average of 25m monthly visitors, Thought Catalog.

*Trigger warning (TW): depression, self-harm on actual post*
