Steph interviews ME about my depression; anxiety; alcohol abuse; medication history; and suicidal ideations.  The interviewer becomes the interviewed!  This was a cathartic conversation.  We talk about some really personal stuff and discuss a certain night in detail.  If you're struggling with depression, you are not alone, my friend.
