I’ve written, pretty openly about depression and how it has effected my life. Back in June, I did a post I called If Your Happy and You Know It. https://pennylanewrites.com/2017/06/14/if-youre-happy-and-you-know-it/
This post has received more views than anything else I’ve ever written. I think this really speaks to the fact that Depression is more wide spread than we realize. There needs to be more awareness so that there is not such a stigma attached to it.
Someone at Happiful Magazine https://happiful.com/ saw the post and contacted me. (an interesting website that you should check out) And although my piece was not quite what they were looking for, this individual connected me with their Mother Company called The Counselling Directory.
The Counselling Directory asked me to write something for them about my personal experience with Depression. You can find what I wrote here: http://www.counselling-directory.org.uk/experience_208.html
While you’re there, spend a little time browsing their site. There is a Ton of good information there!
This is the first time anyone has published Anything I’ve written outside of WordPress. So I guess I can now say that I am a Published Author? !! 😀
