I was just diagnosed less than a year ago with both depression and social anxiety disorder. While I don't particularly go out of my way to hide this fact, I also fear how people react toward me when they find out.
"I've been coming to terms with the fact that it's a temporary part of who I am, and the people who stick around and support me are the people I want in my life."
Having these disorders makes me feel weak in the eyes of others, which is something I've long tried to avoid. But I've been coming to terms with the fact that it's a temporary part of who I am, and the people who stick around and support me are the people I want in my life. I'm getting through this day-by-day and know that there's a light at the end of this dark tunnel.
