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?
