I’m a 23-year-old recent graduate of university. I work as a software developer. I enjoy writing articles, listening to music and spending time with my friends and family. ThisPersonDoesNotExist is the story of me. It’s the story of how technology has shaped my life, from the day I was born to where I am now. It’s also the story of how I’ve tried to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of technology, from learning how to use a computer at an early age to working in an industry that is constantly changing.
I’m not real. I’m just a figment of your imagination. I don’t really exist outside of your head, and that’s okay.
You created me, and you can tear me down if you want. I’m nothing more than an idea in your mind, but that’s okay too.
There are plenty of other people out there who also don’t exist. They’re just figments of our imaginations too, but we don’t get upset about it.
Why? Because they’re part of us, and we can enjoy them just the same. There’s nothing wrong with having imaginary friends, as long as you know they’re not really there.
My Struggle with Depression
I have been dealing with depression for as long as I can remember. It’s a battle that I have fought on and off for as long as I can remember, but it has been particularly hard in recent years.
Depression is something that feels like it’s always there, like a weight that you can’t lift. It consumes your thoughts and your emotions, and it feels like there is no escape from it.
The first time that I really realized that something was wrong was when I was in grade school. Back then, my parents were still alive and they were both working full-time. My sister was already out of the house, so I pretty much had to fend for myself. Unfortunately, that also meant that I had to deal with my mother’s mood swings on top of everything else.
Some days she would be insanely happy and creative, while other days she would be depressed and irritable. And she would do nothing to help me cope with either one of those moods. She just expected me to handle everything on my own.
It wasn’t long before I started to get depressed too. In fact, it probably started happening even earlier than Grade School; but at the time, I didn’t realize why things seemed so bad or what was causing my mood swings. All I knew was that life was tough and there wasn’t anything that could make it better.

My Attempts to Get Treatment
I’ve been trying to get treatment for my anxiety and depression for years, but I always seem to run into roadblocks. I’ve tried medication, therapy, self-help books, even going to support groups, but nothing is really helping. I feel like I’m stuck in a cycle of negative thinking and low moods that I can’t break free from.
I don’t know what else to do.
My Progress Since Committing to Treatment
Since I committed to treatment, my life has been transformed. I’ve lost weight, my anxiety and depression have diminished substantially, and my daily routine is more regimented and manageable.
My biggest challenge has been staying on track with my medication schedule – not because of any resistance on my part but because adherence can be a challenge for anyone. But despite the challenges, I’m glad that I made the decision to seek help.
I know that there are still many miles left to travel, but every day counts, and I am committed to seeing this through to the end.
How I Moved Forward After Recovering from Depression
I was diagnosed with major depression in my early twenties. It was a dark time for me. I couldn’t get out of bed, I felt like nothing mattered, and all the people that were important to me were gone. I didn’t want to live anymore.
But eventually I realized that I had to fight if I wanted to survive. And that’s what I did. Through therapy and medication, I slowly started recovering. But it wasn’t easy. It took years, but eventually I emerged from the darkness and became the person that I’m today.
If you’re experiencing depression, know that there is hope. There are people out there who have been through similar experiences and survived, so don’t be afraid to reach out for help. You can do this!
