“I have never been remotely ashamed of having been depressed.Never.What’s there to be ashamed of?I went through a really tough time and I am quite proud that I got out of that” -J.K.Rowling
Year 2000.When I started to feel that something is happening to me that I can’t explain.It was in my 2nd year in high school,when I felt that I don’t want to go to school.I just want to be alone and I don’t want to see people.My mind tells me that they’re making stories about me.I am being paranoid that time.
I did not finished my 2nd year,because of my situation.I can’t talk and I can’t sleep.I remembered twice a year I experiencing depression to the extend that I’m having hallucinations and I almost killed myself.Thank God that my parents are there.After that incident,my parents bring me to a psychiatrist too seek help and to know the proper medication for me.
Until now,I’m still experiencing depression but not severe.Because my parents and my own family is here to love and give me support all the way.And that’s a big help for me to conquer depression.I realized that life is beautiful and God is always there to guide us no matter what.We should learn how to trust him.
And now,I’m starting to continue my goal to be the best that I can be.I want my family to be proud of me.I hope this is the start.If this is God’s will then be it.I claim it.
