Drawing comparisons

31 Aug

Guilty, I’ve done it. I’m sure others have also done it too.

Dealing with depression

22 Aug

I was shocked when I heard about Robin Williams’ death. I am sure we all were, but his case has shown me a very different side to depression.

I’ve talked about depression in one or two of my other blogs here on the site, but there is really another side to it that I haven’t spoken about that perhaps I should. Depression is a subject no one …
