Since then neither of us have had any problems and feel like a weight is off our shoulders now we have told someone who just happens to be our bestfriend.

Having one mental illness is a pain already, but then I developed a second one along the way. Now I deal with severe anxiety and depression both at the same time at loggerheads with each other, but the funny thing is that not many people notice it about me. Although it's a welcome relief that people assume to tread on eggshells around me I'd like them to realise that these illnesses can happen to anyone, and that's what it's all about.

Michelle
