When I was battling depression & lost weight, many thought I was on a death diet & hounded me till I was ashamed to go out. A News Daily called me Anorexic. I got labelled "Snobbish" cos I lost every ability to socialize...Hmm, Things are never what they seem. Let's be guided. My battle with depression lasted 8 years. I have been out of that dark hole for some 5 years now & I wrote a book on my experience. I am fantastic thanks to my family especially hubby, God & my therapists. There's a lot of self-effort required on the journey to recovery.
