As most of you know, speaking out about my own story to reduce the stigma that surrounds mental health issues has become my personal mission. Today I am thrilled to be reaching over a million people with my message.
The Globe and Mail is Canada’s largest-circulation national newspaper and today’s edition features an essay I wrote about my depression. Much of it will be familiar to my faithful readers but it is my rawest piece to date.
Please, take a moment to click the link and read… and then pass the story along. The more people we reach, the better.
Well said brave soul. Right there with you. I manage to get through December, but after that it’s hell until spring and sun and warmth return. Mine is (mostly) seasonal, but I know of what you speak. Kudos for getting it out there!
I think trips south to sun warmed beaches should be covered by health insurance for people like us! Thanks for your lovely comment.
You are an amazing woman,(but I think I have said that before), now everyone knows it!
Says the woman who raises ducks and goats in her spare time! Thanks and right back at you, WonderWoman. Hugs.
Dear Stephanie. Thank you so much for writing this.
Signed, a fellow depressive who appreciates anyone who tries to break the stigma
