October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it is also Depression Awareness Month. Often times depression is not considered a "real illness," but it 100% is.
2/3 of those suffering from depression do not seek treatment.
Women experience depression twice as much as men.
17.5 million Americans are affected by some type of depression.

I've suffered from depression, and hopefully by spreading awareness, others that suffer will seek treatment, as I did. The ribbon for depression awareness is green, so what better polish for my nails than my favorite green, China Glaze Emerald Sparkle?
For some reason the flash makes it look like I have a few bald spots on my nails, but in reality it's an even finish. Hmm...and yeah, I had to add Color Club Covered in Diamonds to this one, too.
It kind of looks like tinsel on a Christmas tree.
Thanks for looking!
