Hello! Claire here. Want to know a secret? I’ve been through clinical depression. And even after a good recovery it still comes back to say hello from time to time.
The Black Dog is an awful and indiscriminate beast – it can, and does, affect any of us. And yet even now in our age of mindfulness, wellness and self-help on tap we still find it hard to talk about. To admit that we’re struggling.
The universe is littered with tales of depression and anxiety, but we can’t always hear them and sometimes we’re not ready to listen. Sometimes all we need is someone to start the conversation. So this is mine.
Join me while I continue to navigate the murky waters of shaky mental health with a smile on my face and my pants on backwards.
