Taking control

This is my first time posting here but I just want to make a statement. I suffer from anxiety which has triggered depression. It took me months to recognize that I wasn't my self anymore and that I was loosing control. Finally after one major breakdown in the middle of class I found my self recognizing I was having an anxiety attack which then triggered depression. It's been an uphill battle and I've always been a strong person but over the past month I've realized that we all experience depression and anxiety at some point in our lives. We are all human but we always have to have the will and power to take control and take the steps necessary to get help. If life wasn't hard then we wouldn't appreciate the little things that make us laugh cry and feel emotion. I didn't just wake up one day and feel better some days I feel more anxious than others but I've found that writing my feelings, walking, going to church, spending time with friends and family has helped me sooo much and I am thankful. This is the phase of my life where my faith is tested and I will be victorious. :)

The strongest people will always have there battles wether its mentally or physically.. We create battles whithin ourselves that only we can fight. There will be a time when everything comes together for you. So just hang in there and smile when you can, because one day thing's will be great again :)
