So you hear someone has anxiety or depression. What pops into your head? Someone who's down a lot or really tense? Those may be some of the symptoms, but it is way more complex than that. Since each of us are unique individuals, we feel depression and anxiety in unique ways. That's why it's important to talk about what it actually feels like; it can help each of us empathize with what is actually happening and it can help others of us identify similarities in ourselves and maybe discover that some of those feelings we have aren't something we should just be "powering through." Maybe they are something that should be addressed and repaired. Imagine that!
Julya talks about what her depression and anxiety actually feels like and adds her own twist on how she views it in order to take charge and effectively live with it.
