[W]hen I read this. . . pledge I knew I had some responsibility as far as helping to end the stigma and spread the message that we’re all human and we’re all on planet Earth together.

I am 22 years old. I have had depression for 4 years and first sought treatment in September 2013. I have been in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy since the beginning of January 2014. I have a boyfriend, T, who isn’t sure what to do about it and I’m not sure what he wants from me. I’m starting a new exercise programme, trying to weigh up whether medication will help and waiting to see what’s going to work. Maybe being part of Blog for Mental Health will help me understand what’s going on and widen the web of support as I’m not sure what I can expect from T at the moment. If you’re reading this, you’re in the web and you’re part of the journey.
