My name is Steve and I experience depression and mild PTSDSteve's blog

My mental illness has affected my social interaction with people and has cost me my marriage. 

My greatest source of support has been my counseling and my parents. 

My hope for the future is that I gain strength day by day to help recognise signs of depression within me and stressors that affect me.

I'm taking 5 on Time to Talk Day because I want to bring hope to people that read this who suffer as well, and to help people understand how mental illness effects people.

This blog is part of the Time to Talk Day 2015 #Take5ToBlog initiative.
