Black dog (depression)
Well here I am 3 am, writing about depression again, I know most of you will be thinking, not that old chestnut again.
Well one of the reasons I write about it is that you can only offload so much onto your family, so you lot are my shoulder to cry on…oh yes I mean that literally, I sit here and have a good greet, yea men do cry…I am not crying because I want sympathy, it’s another release mechanism for me, I feel better after a good greet, every depression sufferer has a different way of coping.
Now I ask myself, if that’s the way I feel I wonder how many other people round the world feel this way but have never been to see a doctor for help, a lot of people don’t realise they have depression and their life must be terrible not knowing why they are feeling the way they do, so I suggest if you are feeling that there is something not right with you, go and see a doctor, I hope you are lucky and get a doctor as good as mine, he put me on the right road for treatment.
I knew this was coming over a few days when I was short tempered with people, and esp. a guy at my work got both barrels, just for saying something that I would normally just ignore or make a joke about. I will apologise to him when I go back, and explain why I was like that.
Soon I will be doing one of Billy No ‘well’s radio shows on the subject of depression, people can ask questions about the subject, I am not an expert on the subject but if we can guide people in the right direction and they get help, then that’s a start.
Please feel free to ask questions in the comments section after this wee blog.
Depression is a horrible disease, but you don’t have to suffer on your own, there are people out there who will help, use them and don’t suffer on your own.
Feel free to DM me with your question and we will try and give you an answer,

Look after yourself.
