Depression is not the same as feeling down

Depression is not the same as feeling down or fed up. People might say ‘I’m a bit depressed today,’ but true depression is quite different. Imagine how you would feel if you lost the thing or person you love most in the world and were totally alone. That’s what it’s like. ( Too right mate, I lost my business, caused by Dr A, at the same time  as I was losing my family, my sister started to reject me and  noone helped)

I wouldn’t have wished my illness on my worst enemy. I’ve spoken to people who’ve experienced similar feelings and, whereas before I would have said ‘Just get on with it, we’re all men, we’re all missing home,’ I now understand how they feel.

BUT the lucky man got help and support whereas I got discrimination, lies and abuse
