I did everything right and followed all the rules. I’ve always been a goody-two-shoe and committed myself to excel in school. I’ve always been mature and independent, I knew from a very young age that I was in control of my future.
For good and bad, this is my life with high-functioning anxiety.
I struggle with depression. Whether I'm on top of the world or can't get myself out of bed, it'll always be a part of my life. Depression can come in waves; sometimes, it's a tsunami that overtakes my entire life, sometimes it's a little wave that sneaks its way into my thoughts.
