    Please know that you can live well with depression just as millions live well with an illness like diabetes. I know this because I went from living with depression to thriving with depression. It is true that awareness alone wont fix it. A steady combination of medications (down to two now!), talk therapy (I finally found a great therapist.), and a healthy diet changed my life. It took a lot of work and determination but my life is Close to being perfect. Okay, it’s not perfect for everyone, but it is perfect for me. I learned coping skills that gave me the power I need to live well. Uncontrolled depression is dangerous. Be well. You are already brave. 🙂
