"Mom, my depression is taking over my life."
She asks me, "Where did depression come from?"
I tell her, "It's my dormant friend inside my head that never leaves."
She tells me, "You should go out to parties, then your 'friend' would go away."
I say, "No, because Depression invites Anxiety to the 'party' and it just makes everything worse."
She yells, "Where did anxiety come from?!"
I'm crying when I yell back, "I don't know! It's always been there!"
