Reaching for help

I knew depression had taken hold of my life. The illness was common within my immediate family, but I kept these warning signs to myself. I didn’t want to appear weak or spineless. I didn’t want to be discharged from the military. But that was just the stigma I created for myself. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Senior Airman Deana Heitzman)
