As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been living with (diagnosed) depression for a few years. Since days are easy and some days are harder than you could ever imagine. Or, maybe you could.
I’ve been an advocate for mental health awareness for along time – even before I was fully aware that I was depressed and not just “sad.” That’s why when this video was brought to my attention, I just knew I had to share it.
It’s from a Kickstarter campaign aiming to raise funds to make a movie called, “Life, in Spite of Me.”
High school student, Kristen Jane Anderson, thought she had the picture-perfect life until strokes of gray dimmed her outlook: three close friends and her grandmother died within two years. Then, still reeling from these losses, she was raped by a friend she thought she could trust. She soon spiraled into a seemingly bottomless depression.
