May is Mental Health Month

This post from the Tumblr reminded me that I wanted to say something quick about mental health.

I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety disorder for most of my life. During most of that time, I basically had no hope of my life ever improving. But it did. Things absolutely do get better. I’ll never be “cured” per se, but I’m at a place where it’s all manageable and it doesn’t control my life. Feels great, man.

If you’re going through some stuff, try to remember that you’re not alone.

(Everyone: I encourage you to share your own experiences. It could help somebody.)

There are few effective treatments as universal as talking to somebody.
