Functioning is a visual, educated way of teaching the world that having depression and/or anxiety doesn't mean that they are all low functioning. What we portray on the outside doesn't always match what we're feeling on the inside. The issue with today's world is that we invalidate the high functioning people, potentially causing more distress and fuel to what they already feel on the inside. My hope is that the book will educate people to stop assumptions based on the outside and to be more kind to others.
