What Depression Looks Like

March 11, 2015

I came across this Huffington Post piece, reposted on Facebook.  A teenage girl describes her depression and how it differs from what people expect.

That’s how I was.  I was in leadership, I worked, i was a camp counselor, I was on the swim team, I was top of my class.  Nobody knew I had any reason to be depressed.  I think if it had been more visible, I might have gotten help sooner.

Anyone else have a similar (or different) story?
