Personal Stories of Depression
The big event that put me on medication full time was the loss of my dad. I started taking medication every night. I knew if I didn’t take it I would crumble.
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.
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.
