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.
