I believe that many of the LGBTQ issues are issues in which society has made into LGBTQ issues. I have worked with many in the community to help them work with coming out to families, moving forward in the transition process, and dealing with their own internal struggles.
To me depression is like standing on a cliff. Day to day we can go through our daily tasks, though it is hard, but we can “fake it“. Once we fall off the edge of the cliff that is when depression overtakes us. It’s hard to get out of bed, isolate from others, and the feelings of being a burden. You might even start having thoughts of self harm. I have worked with numerous clients to help keep them from allowing the depression to overtake them.
I personally know what it’s like to experience anxiety. The worry the shortness of breath the pounding heart beats, the feeling of panic. I have had to learn how to control anxiety and not let it control me.
