I first noticed a my low moods and depression like symptoms when I was 19. When I thought about it more, I discovered that I had been feeling this way for most of my teenage and young adult life. I struggled at first to tell anyone about the way I was feeling as, to put it best I was ashamed of the way I felt and thought that I just needed to "Man up" But the first person I did tell was My close friend and then a few other friends who have helped me realize that I am in fact not alone and I can seek help. But after saying all this I still felt terrible and I have had a few attempts to take my own life. i am now getting therapy for the way I feel and I am trying to turn my life around. Still sometimes I feel so alone and feel like nothing will ever change, my social anxiety often plays into this and makes it hard for me to make new relationships and friendships. I am trying to get better through positive thinking. I want to try and raise as much as I can to spread awareness and actually try and help people suffering from mental heath, as I am sick of people talking about it on social media such as twitter, stop talking about it and actually do something if you really care about the cause, sad thing is most people don't, But I do so please help me
