My Black Hole.

I never knew Depression was an illness, I just knew of "The Great Depression" until I was diagnosed with it in October 2012 after coping with it for 4 years, even then I didn't know what it was. I hadn't been taught or told anything about it. I didn't know how much it affected your life. I was unable to work in school, after 3 months of of being in college, I had to leave because my Depression was near impossible to live with, and I haven't been back since. After 5-6 suicide attempts and 6 years of self harm i've managed to find a level in which I am able to cope. I haven't self harmed in 7 months and I am incredibly proud of myself! Each day has gotten easier, i've not felt the need to since January 1st. When you're in the 'dark hole' you can't see a way out, you can't see how things will get better, but they do, they really do! Yes there will always be days when you feel like there's nothing left for you, or that you can't cope anymore but that's just Depression wiggling it's way into your mind, there is always a way out. It can take a long time but there will always be a way out! Keep strong everyone!<3
