I hope, in reading my story about coping with depression, you will be strengthened in your own journey and feel comforted that you are not alone.
Hi! I am Miriam. I was born in Montreal, Canada and currently reside in Brooklyn, NY. Professionally, I teach psychology at the college level and do counseling in a mental health clinic. My own journey with mental illness has significantly helped me to relate my clients. In my free time, I enjoy writing poetry and short pieces, primarily about mental health and the human struggle. I hope you find my story inspiring and helpful in your recovery.
It felt like I got hit by a truck. Immobilized. Debilitated. That basically sums up my experience battling depression. It has been a long struggle.
