Four years ago, I was diagnosed with a mental illness at the age of 20 (MADD – mixed anxiety-depressive disorder) and it has impacted my life in a number of ways. It affects my general health, my relationships with those around me, as well as how I perceive myself. But through the few interests that stick with me despite my MADD, I am slowly finding my way through the darkness.
“When our hearts were depressed, and we were about to turn back, behold, the Lord comforted us, and said: Go amongst thy brethren, the Lamanites, and bear with patience thine afflictions, and I will give unto you success.”
~Alma 26:27, Book of Mormon.
