  Kesha writes in her accompanying essay, "In the past couple of years, I have grown into a strong, independent woman.

I've battled intense anxiety and depression, a relentless eating disorder, and all the other basic bullshit that comes with being human. I know I'm not alone in that battle. Finding the strength to come forward about these things is not easy, but I want to help others who are going through tough times."
