I've been depression since I was 13, so that's 7 years. I've been in a psyciatric unit 4 times, sectioned twice. Due to not only depression but drug induced psychosis. I'm a recovering alcoholic. I can't forgive anything.
If you have any questions about tablets, alcohol & weed, duration of recovering, even just a bit of motivation to keep it up then talk to me and I can help
I'm not a nurse, CPN or psychiatrist, I've been there and I'm still trying to get out of it, so I'll help as much as I can and I won't be patronizing like a lot of professionals.
I can't be bothered to talk about my depression story if you want to know then I'll tell you.
