How are we going to do it? I wanted to elaborate a bit deeper on the total absence of any mental health representation at the Walk The Talk event organized by the WHO last Sunday. Other handicaps were represented, mainly physical ones but not us. It has been on my mind since Sunday and left … Continue reading Even there, we don’t matter.
We got up early and left ahead of time as we didn’t want to miss this event. It was a first for both us, and were pretty excited about it and didn’t know what to expect. It was a good thing that we left a bit earlier as we faced two long detours as other … Continue reading Walk The Talk, May 2018
It is incredible to witness what depression can do to you. It feels like a court judgment for a crime you haven’t committed and the punishment takes effect immediately.
