Mental Health Awareness: My story; My truth.

Kayla Primes

I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Yes, I received help even though it took me a while. Yes, I go to therapy. Yes, I take medication, and yes, I hid behind my smiles and bubbly personality. However, on the inside I was fighting something dark that wanted me to take my own life. It was a rough road. You never know what someone is going through. I was scared to talk to someone because of what I thought they would think of me. I was at my wits end with this thing. I was giving up and tired.

I finally yelled out to God to help me, and he did!! He saved me and delivered me. He reminded me that I have my kids, my family, and my husband who needed me and how it would hurt them if I took my life. My thoughts were running ramped. There were sleepless nights and appetite changes. My emotions were all over the place. There were moments of rage and then anger. But Thank God, I’m still here! I’m still working on myself, and I am a work in progress.

My message to someone that is dealing with mental health issues is to please get help and talk to someone. Someone will listen. To those who do not suffer from mental illness, always check on your family and friends because you never know what they may be going through. It doesn’t matter if it’s a call, text, or visit. Check on them.

I am no longer ashamed to tell my story because it could help someone. If God saved and delivered me, he can do the same for you! It’s ok to not be ok. But just remember, you’re not alone.

Depression is real. Let’s stop ignoring signs and sweeping them under the rug. Seek professional help.  I’ve been healed spiritually, mentally, and physically.
