Depression: My story 

IMG_9944.JPG
As a child there was a little handheld game I played. The aim of the game was to put out fires in a tower block as Mickey Mouse. You’d be putting out one fire and whilst you weren’t looking, another would appear in a different window, and that’s what I can best equate my mental health to. I spent over a year of my life trying to put out something that I thought was the most important fire and whilst I devoted all of my time, and energy to that, a bigger fire was spreading elsewhere, and that fire was depression.
