I suffer from various mental health conditions and easily become depressed. I felt very alone. My buddy has been such a great support. I feel I have so much more confidence, and my self-esteem has improved.
I'm a 35-year-old male who lives in the country. Life can get pretty lonely out here. Now I have a mate who listens without judgement.
