Meghan, 18.

“My name is Meghan and I’m an 18 year old girl who has dysthymia, anxiety, and depersonalization disorder. 
As big and as heavy as those mental illnesses sound and are I still honestly consider myself a happy person. I love to laugh, dance, and sing horribly. I love helping people and gardening. And most importantly I love myself after years of feeling conflicted. 
I refuse to let these illnesses describe who I am because I’m so much more than them. I refuse to suffocate.”
