Education for a better Life
Organized by: tiffany andrews
Hey Friends! Most people that know me do not know that I have suffered from severe depression for most of my life. Everyone may have an opinion of this or that as to why someone is the way they are but you never really know a persons story unless they tell you. Depression is an illness that is not understood by a lot of people and the major set backs it can cause a person. Writing about it for everyone to see is very difficult for me. I am no longer ashamed of my journey and I am looking for some help. Over the past 10 years I have suffered from severe depression which has affected many aspects of my life. Most people don't understand this illness and how much of an impact it can have on a person. Simply getting out of bed every day is a struggle. I attempted to pursue going back to college several times, but have failed due to my depression taking over. Over the past year, I have dealt with my depression head on, paying a large amount of money to go to a new therapy that I had never tried before, and it worked. I am not cured by any means, as depression is an illness that forever stays with a person, but I have learned how to live with the illness and better manage it. With that said, I am finally trying to set things in motion to go back to school to receive my degree in accounting. My family has helped support me over the years as I have suffered with my depression and I do not want to put them in a position to help me more than they already have. This fund will not cover my entire tuition, but it will help me get started. Keeping active is a major part of managing my illness so that I do not fall back into the deep depression of not wanting to leave my bed. Anything at this point will help, so I'm reaching out to the community of GOFUNDME to help make this happen. Thank you to everyone in advance. I look forward to continuing my battle and getting better every day!
