Because it was just One More Thing that needed caring for, looking after, sorting out.
That's one way I knew I was suffering from depression. Not the very BLACK sort but more dark grey, up and down, when anything would make me panic, feel I couldn't cope and sink into a dark hole, which took days to get out of again .
Thank goodness doctors understood that I needed a small dose of anti-depressants all year round and all the time. It's a lack of a chemical in the brain and since then, with that small dose I've been fine.
Now I don't suffer from depression. I just feel normal - if there is such a thing!.
There is nothing wrong with taking anti-depressants - either in the short term or long term it's just the same as a person with diabetes needing insulin - always.
Mental Health needs talking about. It's this years W.I. Resolution to be put forward at the National AGM and campaigned for all year.......... MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

Delphiniums, Golden Feverfew, Nigella and Veronica.
