My best friend, Daniell, knows just what to do when I’m depressed or in a state of sheer panic. She understands me and my struggles to the core and has a good reason to; we’ve been friends since the ninth grade and have gone through so much together. I try to be transparent in life, but it’s hard. Some people know this, some do not… but I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression since the age of 12. Daniell is, of course, one of the people in my life who knows this about me.
