In this episode of our relationship podcast Something Like Marriage, I tell my depression story of recovery. The process of becoming healthy began with my self-care after I had spiraled down into severe depression. Recovery included medication, exercise, diet changes, and therapy. My husband also supported me during the journey by giving me perspective.
