Empower Asks: How did you know you were suffering from depression? Annie: I, kind of discovered when there was a lack of motivation inside me, a lack of feeling, a lack of joy that I tagged it as, I think this that I am kind of depressed a lots of crying, just frustration with myself with life not having any hope. That's where I think that fits the definition of depression and that's where I thought, that if I changed something that it had to go away. I just knew what it can just stay with you. This is ridiculous. There has to be someway, I can overcome this silly pain called depression. And I am all about mind over matter. I am not going to let my mind control how all my emotions. I don't want my emotions to control my body. And that's why I think exercise really plays a good part, because it requires so much discipline to where I have to achieve the goals I had achieved. I look at it as way to with a discipline; I also put it into the depression it means of conquering my emotions.
