The other week I jumped LIVE onto the F.A.B Mumma Facebook page and talked about the side effects of anti-depressants. A controversial topic for sure but I decided to go there anyway.
I’ve suffered from depression since a very young age. I can’t put my finger on a specific age but there were symptoms from as young as ten. If that’s even possible right?
Thirty years ago I had post natal depression and things were a bit different back then. My counsellor arranged for me to have a 3 week break from my family. I needed a break but not the isolation.
Many people who have had depression swear that being introduced to creativity has helped them immensely. Creativity is not just about painting and drawing so let’s dig a little deeper.
The “funny” thing about depression is that it never stays the same! Why can it not just stay the same? This is my constant DAILY struggle. I feel judged. I feel like I let people down. I feel tired and I feel alone.
