My Experience With Depression

May is mental health awareness month. I was not going to speak on this topic because I did an interview last year and it was a very good interview and, I thought I said all that was needed to be said I was very vulnerable.  I wasn't really feeling like going that deep again but, when God wakes you up in the middle of the night and tells you, it's time to share again, well, here I am again going deep.

Let me, be the first to raise my hand, when I was a child my life was everything one would classify as a great childhood until the age of nine years old.
