“I’ve suffered depression from my early 40s into my mid-50s.
“(It was) bad enough for me to entertain the idea of going into a hospital. I actually wasn’t a danger to myself, but I really sometimes wondered how I could get out of the house to go get food.
“I was on anti-depressants for over 15 years, with very intermittent counseling. It was a very dead period of my life. Anti-depressants take away the lows but they also reduce the highs. And, for me, over a long period of time, they didn’t really work. So I quit taking them, and my life has been a fire since then.”
