So if you’re out there living with this shit, know I love you. Know other people love you. Let them help you.
This is about the time I chose not to die.

Thank you Mike Monteiro. As a husband, father, and designer who has lived with depression and suicidal ideation for the last three years, your words give me courage.

So many times I feel like a freak or weirdo because I struggle with a darkness that often doesn’t seem to lift.

Thank you for sharing your story and for the unintended warmth encouragement it provided for me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
