CareZone | Member Stories: Managing Depression

“CareZone’s app not only reminds me to take my medication, but also reminds me to give my service dog, Fairie, her epilepsy meds as well. Thank you, CareZone. We couldn’t make it without you!”

-Dana

Dana describes herself as a “warrior” who never gives up. Here’s what she shared with CareZone about living with bipolar disorder, depression, and hypothyroidism:

What is the most challenging part of managing your conditions?

Dealing with the fact that I have a mental illness and the stigma that goes along with it.

What advice would you give to someone who was recently diagnosed with your conditions?

Take your meds every day and always remember that you can reach success one choice at a time.

How do you de-stress?

I listen to music or relax in a hot bath.

What’s your superpower?

My intuition.
