Welcome to my experiment.
I have a diagnosis of major depression. And an autoimmune disease to boot. Medications can only do so much.
I see a psychiatrist weekly for therapy. Take my medications. Try. Try. Try. But the reality is I need help. I’m 33 years old and most days I feel like my future is bleak.
So this is me… Trying again. Something new. Maybe noone will ever read or care about the words I write. That is ok. This experiment is for me. If it helps another person along the way that is a beautiful bonus.
I would love company on my journey.
So… Where to begin?
I’m Nat. 33 year old Mum of 2 (3 and 4 year old) and avid gardener.
The one place I feel free of the black dog is in my garden (5 acres of Wandoo bush in WA). It has kept me alive through the worst of my depression. Gives me an escape and hope for a depression free future.
I’m looking forward to sharing my garden with you all. Maybe one day I will find my depression buried in the garden too. I can hope!
