Smile In Tanzania

Broken Light Collective

Please welcome first-time contributor Antalia Terblanche, a 19-year-old who lives in Bexleyheath, London, and suffers from depression. Antalia used to self-harm and struggle with bulimia. She sought treatment two years ago, after her teachers noticed her grades slipping and her absence at school. She had been experiencing suicidal dreams leading to suicidal thoughts, and panic attacks at the thought of going to school. The counseling, in addition to support from her family, and the few friends that understood her illness, helped immensely. It was a hard struggle. She sometimes feels empty and numb, but her medication and positive mindset help melt the darkness away. She is in a happy place with her life now; studying at university with great family support behind her.  She carries on looking positively.
