About Me

I Believe in Romeo charts my journey with depression and anxiety as I come to terms with and work to overcome my mental illness. I blog about self-improvement, selfcare and learning to love yourself. Out of negative life circumstances can come positivity; and I want to normalize mental illness so that no one ever has to feel as alone as I did when I was first struggling with my illness.

When I was a 1st year student in university, I was diagnosed with depression. Moving away from home to an entirely new structure and place had been really difficult on me. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't eat. I was irritable. I was hurting and alone. My moods were low and my thoughts turned to suicide.

I got help. A diagnosis gave me relief and comfort. I learned I was not alone.

Every day since has been a journey as I try to live with my mental illness. I will not let it define me.

  1. Hello Zoe, I've been following your blog for some time now, since we exchanged tweets when finding solutions for depressed days. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy it and appreciate your amazing honesty and courage. Also, how mature your thinking is - I'm 55 and have struggled with depression all my life but especially in my 20s - I just floundered then, but you're really addressing things head on and inspiring others, too! I know it's still not always easy - so good luck and thanks! Anne
