Have you ever heard the word depression before? Why did I go through it? Being in and out of the hospital since I was young made me become insecure. My flaws were pointed out and picked on. My brother called me names and made me feel ashamed. My mom brought up my weight and made me feel hate. Running away doesn’t help but makes things more complicated. My best friend moved away and made me feel more alone. My hope is that people would read my story and know that they are strong and not alone in their sufferings.
