I’ve suffered from depression all my life. I’ve struggled with the loneliness it brings with it.
Some of it is false loneliness: When I’m depressed it’s easy to forget how many people are there for me… will always be there for me.
Some of it is self imposed loneliness: When I’m depressed I avoid my friends because I’m afraid that if they find out they won’t like me any more.
Well, it’s time to face the lies, and bring out the truth. My name is Aoife Brown and I suffer from depression. I am not alone. Neither are you.
