I’m not sure if this will ever get far, but it’s something this website has me optimistic about. I’m 20 and this was possibly my most successful collegiate year in both athletics (I am a college baseball player) and also academically as I’ve pulled off a 3.0 GPA. I attend a school far away – 7 hrs away from all my family members and loved ones. I did nothing but look forward to the time when my work was complete in school and baseball. When the time came and I had successfully achieved my personal goals and my mission for my sophomore year of college, I realized drastic changes. I became very anti social, I lost motivation, had high anxiety, and felt like a robot. Due to this I fell into a depression. Someone so happy with myself, thousands of friends and someone who truly enjoys life. I’ve always been motivated and regardless of what has happened I stay motivated.
After doing some research I came to the conclusion that I had a mental illness and disorder called “Depersonalization”. My very person in question. I knew something was wrong and in fear of the world I choose a person to tell and later on, a parent. I now have worked on going to a therapist and had one sit down and say that what I believed I had is what I actually do have.
I plan to overcome this horrific disorder and this foundation is amazing. Just when I thought nothing like this even existed, I saw something on Brandon Marshall on the NFL network at about midnight. Thank you.
