What’s it like to live with anxiety, an all-consuming disease that robs you of your peace? For those who don’t know, this video paints a pretty accurate picture. And for those who do? Well, you are not alone.

So how can we battle something this encompassing?

Through education, compassion and love. The more we know, the better off we will all be. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or mental stress, text ‘Start’ to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741. It’s free, confidential; and someone is available to talk to you 24/7. You can visit their website www.crisistextline.org for more information. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800-273-8255) or National Alliance on Mental Illness (800-950-6264) for support and local referrals.

And if you haven’t already, check out The Mighty. Their motto is real people, real stories – we face disability, disease and mental illness together. You might find someone to relate to, or something to touch your heart.
