I am 55 male and have been suffering from depression for over 2 decades. I guess it all started a bit earlier when my mum committed suicide in front of me at the age of 8. That image never cease to haunt me…
Ever since my mother’s death, i buckled all my emotions and managed to do well in uni and got a very well paid job. I was respected in the community but now this dark cloud has amassed over my head again and tried as i have like in the past. I cant go on. I used to draw strength from my son , needing to provide his education etc but he is doing well and there is no need for me to be around.
I am not short of money, in good physical shape and have lots of friends but nothing can empower me to defeat Depression. Goodbye and good luck to all.
Depression- You win.
