One lesson I've learned is that people dealing with Depression and Anxiety are some of the strongest people in the world! No one in my family has ever dealt with anything like this until my head injury. After my head injury I was scared of everything! I didn't understand why I felt that way. My parents had to get guardianship over me just to get me in the hospital. The Neurologist said I had brain damage from my fall. I have Epilepsy, Migraines, Depression, Severe Anxiety, Phobias, etc.
It took a court order to get me the help I needed. My parents still have guardianship over me so that I can't backout of my appointments out of fear. Yet other people ask for help, are willing to go to appointments, make appointments themselves and go to them on their own. I commend them for their bravery in dealing with conditions that are not easy to face.
