Experiencing depression or anxiety, as we all know, is very normal and everyone experiences it in one way or another in their life,” she wrote in a lengthy post.

“But if it takes up your life for months, then something isn’t right and it needs to be addressed.”

Milly recognized that there is no one-size-fits-all cure, and encouraged people to do what’s best for them.

“Yes, ideally most people would like to be very natural. For me personally, antidepressants were the best thing I’ve ever done,” she continued.

Micah died on December 28, 2019 at the age of 26, after taking a mixture of illegal and prescription drugs.
