Anyone who follows my Wattpad profile may have noticed a little side project I did earlier in the summer called Self Loathing and Camomile Tea. A short story, non fiction, it is a personal account of my own struggles and experiences with depression, chronic anxiety and self loathing tendencies. I know I am not the only one who goes through these things, but when at my lowest, that is how it feels. I know there are people worse off than myself, but when I am low, I see only the dark. I know others feel this way, and writing this project was a form of cathartic freedom for me, and as a hope to show others they are not alone.
Well, Wattpad has started a reading list along side The Maddie Project, hoping to raise awareness and understanding for youth with mental illness and depression. I am honored to have SLCT be a part of this project, in the 'It Gets Better' reading list.
Please check out the profile on Wattpad, and all the good The Maddie Project is doing to help erase stigma, and show youth they are not alone.
