This is about the time I chose not to die.

“Better yet, I think I am finally me.”

This is perfectly stated. I had the same fear that being medicated would make me a weaker, diluted version of myself. Instead, I wake up interested in the world around me. Instead, I feel true emotions without the lens of depression (most of the time). Instead, I am stronger and more myself than ever before. Thank you for sharing your bravery.
