It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling— that really hollowed-out feeling.
— J.K. Rowling

This website isn’t just mine. That’s not the purpose now and never was. I can share everything that I’ve gone through, but that will only be one experience in millions. What we need is your experience. Whether you are someone who suffers from a mental illness, or you know someone who suffers, share your story. It can help others who are navigating through their own journey.
