In addition to not being able to work full time and paying for anti-depressant medication and therapy, depression often comes with extra expenses that many people don't know about.

💮 I haven't filed my income taxes because I got so overwhelmed trying to fill out the forms and too tired to hunt down all my receipts. As a result, I am denied government subsidies for prescription medication and have to pay full price.

💮 I often forget to pay my bills on time and end up with late fees or interest charges.

💮 My 2 year home internet contract ran out and I've been paying double for the past six months because it feels insurmountable to call the company to renew it or to research other options.

Have you had any increased costs in your life as a result of depression or another mental illness?
