"From what I saw as a kid, being an adult looked miserable," Dagostino said. "I saw nothing good out of growing up and continuing to live."
This is a quote from Laura Zenga. We hear these kind of statements often and many people like Laura are looking for a solution to their depression. The following article by Alana Melanson from the LowellSun News is about the journey of a young women to finding a solution to her depression.

"The best way that I can describe it is that it's kind of like a small woodpecker in one spot, but it doesn't hurt that much," Zenga said. "You get used to it."
