Depression is like…..struggling to breathe

Leave a comment

A couple of days ago I was honoured to have a guest post published by the brilliantly talented and inspiringly honest Sunny Spells and Scattered Showers. In the introduction to the post, she described me as “a blogger who at times seems to be reading my mind“. The feeling is entirely mutual! I am so glad I discovered her award-winning blog and I want to thank her for her for writing and for sharing her struggles, and for her understanding.

My guest post was inspired by one of her own pieces, called ‘What do you mean you can’t breathe? There’s loads of air in here, which I shared through my most recent post on this site. Her own post was itself inspired by an image comparing depression with asthma. The image made a big impression on me, just as it had on her and on her readers, and my guest post grew out of me pondering why it was so much more powerful (in my opinion) than other images of its kind. The guest post can be found here, and while you’re on her site, please do check out some of her excellent writing!
