My journey from there to here has been a long one, I’m in recovery now, and there is now a future.
My blog helps me put into perspective the mental challenges I’ve faced over a number of years, right up to the complete breakdown 2 years ago, I’m on the otherside and many lessons have been learned.
Awareness is key, so many of us don’t realise what is happening to us, and where to go for support.
Coupled with this is that depression is an silent and invisible illness, and sufferers need help and not judgement this illness does not recognise age, colour, height, weight, education etc, it can happen to anyone with sometimes terrible consequences.
I write because although in recovery the dark clouds do still come to visit every now and then, writing helps me, get perspective back.
