My life has been one struggle after another Dealing with depression was not as easy or as fun as a ride on a slide It was more like a sickening spin on the merry-go-round it felt like I was holding on for dear life and spinning so fast my hands were loosing grip My therapy sessions were a revolving door I went in and came out hoping it to be the last but only to face another session It all started around the tender age of 13-just getting into my teenage years I battled with my identity It felt like I was walking against a strong wind I knew I was adopted ever since I understood what that meant but I wasnt happy knowing this I began going to therapy with my family only to find myself angrier than a punished child I attempted suicide twice in that few months and finally manipulated my parents into taking me out of that therapy For the next two years I kept any negative feelings undercover not opening my shell to anyone By the beginning of my junior year in high school I couldnt keep it in My emotions exploded like an overheated bag of popcorn More suicide attempts were made I was taken to our local hospital where I was put in the psychiatric unit and diagnosed with major depression This news hit me like a bug on a moving cars windshield I didnt know this was a sickness I was released and forced to start individual therapy I became very close to my new therapist-she made me laugh and helped me to solve little problems Although things were looking better there were a lot of problems still hovering over me like vultures around road kill I again tried killing myself and was sent back to the hospital This time I was released into an intense therapy group for teenagers These sessions were every weekday for either
