Topic: very important topic please read thanks easybeat
I`ve taken a big gamble on doing this but i have faith in human nature so here goes.
for many years now ive been suffering depression off and on,i`ve acted /lied/hidden etc
didn`t tell anyone as i didn`t even understand it myself so how can you explain to others
also i didn`t want to burden those close to me,also a terrible stigma attached.
i was embarrassed guilty and ashamed.after a recent series of panic attacks i couldn`t
take the acting any more.there was a lot of tears to put it mildly.
looking back at songs ive written over the years i now see they were often about me.
im getting some councilling and being tought techniques to cope with all the unless stuff
going round in my head.
the reason im writing this is because once i became totally honest with people it has started
an amazing healing process,with out exception every single person has been understanding
and supportive.i don`t want sympathy,but i do want something from YOU,probably a quarter of
people ive opened up to is suffering too.this came as a shock to me.but i found talking to them
was good for me and vice versa,win win.it`s so simple it`s a bloody crime we`re all hiding/acting.
if you`re one of these people im very happy if you email me for a chat,if you notice someone whos
changed and become withdrawn not their usual self please broach this subject with them.
i feel well on the road to recovery now,mostly from just talking and being honest with some support.
thanks for taking the time to read this,am happy if you pass it on.
