What were the steps leading up to your diagnosis?

I have had moments where I was feeling so bad, so low, and so down. I thought of suicide or just let myself perish inside. Unfortunately for the devil, I stand strong by the grace of God.

My pain was caused by others, especially by the people I loved, liked and appreciated. I was so naive and kind that I would just love them without condition not knowing that this world is made of evil people and that not everyone will love you the way you love them.

I ended up broken, deeply broken by treason or from other's behaviors. People had cultivated in me complexes of inferiority. For them, I was too much, too this, or too that. I believed then that I was too much, so I have accepted and lowered myself and became weak.

Who has been there for you? How?

No one. This is because some people did not understand my condition. When I was talking about seeing a therapist, I'm sure some people laughed at me because they don't understand my situation and think depression is a joke.

What lifestyle changes have you needed to make?

I pray, read the bible, surround myself with positive thoughts, and I force myself to think positive and do positive. I focus on things that make me feel good.

What accomplishment are you proud of?

Today, I think positive of myself, and I don't apologize to people for that. I write about depression to help others and tell them that they can make it.

Another accomplishment I'm proud of is that I have written two books and recently published an article in a monthly lifestyle magazine which focuses on depression.

What's your advice to someone else living with Depression?

Do the opposite of your negative thoughts and action. Seek help in the Lord. Do not accept depression because it is time for you to stand. I know and understand that it's hard, but we are warriors.

We are warriors.
