Just doing a quick intro. I registered today in the midst of an awful mental health day. Been struggling with depression and anxiety for over 10 years now, but it's gotten worse in the last couple years or so. 

Recently turned 30, working full-time at an insurance brokerage and going to school part-time for pre-nursing. Have an amazing boyfriend and two adorable cats. Addicted to coffee and Cherry Coke Zero.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi and welcome!

I've struggled with depression and anxiety for most of my life, too. I've also recently turned 30 and have two wonderful little (and not so little) kitties! I'm so sorry you're having a hard time these last few years. Depression and anxiety are certainly brutal and unrelenting disorders. I hope you're able to find support and comfort here on the forums. Reach out when you need to; we're all here for you.

Best wishes to you and good luck with your schooling!

(And don't be afraid of sharing pictures of those adorable kittens! ^_^)

Here's to a better tomorrow. :icon12:
