Sometimes your head goes wrong. That’s been the case for me over the last month or two. This bout of depression has been the worst for some years. But is also normal for me. It’s the way my brain is wired and sometimes the energies in my mind pitch over the abyss into total despair.
I’ve learnt to live with depression over the years. It’s harder for people around me when my anger goes well over the top. It seems like I hate everyone – but in truth I only loath myself.
I’ve decided to be open about this bleak episode of the mind. Mental illness should never be hidden or shoved to one side
I’ve had huge support from friends and fellow councillors in recent days. It’s going to take a couple of weeks to get my head straight again.
When I get my head in order, I’ll write another newsletter. The clouds are lifting in my mind but who can say when the terrors that haunt me will end.
