Day 16: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
This is another difficult prompt, because my life isn't really difficult and I don't want to make it sound like I have it hard or anything. I guess the biggest challenge is dealing with depression -- it's a lot better now, but still something that affects my life. I've probably had it since I was a pre-teen but I wasn't officially diagnosed until I was 16 or 17. I've missed out on some things because of it, plus I can't really work outside home because I tend to get too overwhelmed, triggering a relapse.
It's much better now though, and I would consider myself happy. I know depressive episodes will happen again, but I'm not afraid of them anymore and I know I will get past them.
...That was heavy stuff. Moving on!
