I wanted to stop by and say a huge thank you for all of your support with regards my post a couple of weeks ago. I’m feeling a lot better, I’m not one hundred per cent but I’m able to sit up right most days so in my book that is damn good. Depression isn’t something I can ‘get over’ or shrug off by smiling or thinking about ‘the one life I have’ but with a bit of fight and determination I can dig myself out of the hole and keep on keeping on.
I received so, so many comments, emails and letters after I published that post. I’ve read every single one of them but I haven’t replied just yet because I’m not really in the right head space but I will, I promise. I means the world that so many of you took time out of your day to read my post, to wish me well and to share your experiences. Thank you so much, I mean it.
I made a video last week about depression, talking about it seemed to sit better with me at that moment in time than writing it all down. I shared it on YouTube last week but I wanted to share it here because I know not everyone hangs around on the tubes of you 24/7.
