I'd just like to say that reading and watching the videos on this website has made me feel like I need to be more open about myself in order to address my problems. I suffer from depression and for a long time struggled on in life and made some bad life decisions, masked the issues with alcohol and generally had a very unhappy time and made my partner very unhappy along the way. No one else knows how I feel because I felt ashamed and weak and didn't want other people to be affected, but it is too much to go alone. I want to seek help and feel that the first and most important thing is to accept the problem and face up and not feel ashamed. It is something that so many people will suffer in silence, but this is not the right way to deal with feelings of depression and mental illness and they will not go away by themselves but just get worse and worse.
