Jenna, 18, North Carolina, USA

Whenever I took a shower, I couldn’t shut my eyes because I was convinced that demons would attack me

jenna-no-textObsessive thoughts tormented me throughout my middle school and early high school years. Eventually, all the years of anxiety and other mental health issues culminated into a deep depression. This was the only way I finally found relief from my intrusive thoughts. Of course, the new thoughts of self-loathing and suicide weren’t much better. But they took the panic away. In a way, I became addicted to being sad.

I’m currently undergoing treatment for my depression. I fear that I won’t be able to get better without my obsessive thoughts returning.
