Life can get hard when things don’t go as planned, and this is one of those situations. After writing for HealthyPlace about depression for three years and four months, I had no idea my journey would be cut short. Due to worsening mental health struggles, I have decided to stop writing about depression as an act of self-care. This is my last post for the Coping with Depression blog, and I want to express my gratitude to team HealthyPlace and my readers.
My Experience as a ‘Coping with Depression’ Blogger
As a writer with depression, it is hard to find meaningful work that allows me to talk about depression. But here at HealthyPlace, that has never been a problem. It has been validating to write about my depression-related struggles and coping mechanisms. Connecting with readers made working here doubly fulfilling.
I don’t know what’s next but what I know for sure is that I will always remember my time here fondly. Thank you for giving me a platform and I hope everyone reading this post wins the battle with depression.
