I am kind of like a diesel. It is the cyclist in me.
I love skating so much and I feel like every time I step out onto the ice, that's what I'm meant to do.
The only reason I've shared my story is to take that tiny baby step of breaking down the stigma attached to depression.
I was, without exaggeration, a delinquent teenager.
I had some experience in dealing with people who have mental illness and depression, but I didn't see the signs in myself. I couldn't ask for help because I didn't know I needed help.
