“His poetry is lyrical, tender and profoundly moving...It is how those of us with depression live; adrift in the dark depths but forever struggling to the sunlit shallows.” Sally Brampton, author of Shoot the Damn Dog.
Having witnessed friends, boyfriends and family members go through depression I never thought it would happen to me. My attitude was ‘get over it, think of third world children and then tell me how unhappy you are’, a rather callous approach. I couldn’t understand why they were depressed. They had their health, family, friends, it didn’t make sense.
