My son was diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety at the age of 15. His depression led to his experimentation with drugs and addiction. He used in an attempt to feel "normal." He's been clean from heroin for more than 3 years now, but his depression has come back...and it's a struggle. I wrote this blog post about it. I thought some of you may want to give it a read. Here's the link: Depression Sucks Peace. And to anyone who is battling depression, remember that depression is an illness and can be treated. Please don't ever give up.
