The tale I’m about to share with you is not a happy story, although hopefully, it will have a happy ending. It is my story, and it has shaped my life for the last two decades. I debated for a long time on whether to include it on the website, for it is a subject scorned by many, and could affect my workplace and how I am viewed by others. But it is also an illness a great many people suffer from, usually in silence and shame. It is for all those people who like myself, fight a daily battle, sometimes literally for life and death, that I decided to tell my story. .
I’m talking about depression.
