*** TRIGGER WARNING: DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, SEXUAL ASSAULT, MENTION OF DEATH, SUICIDE AND ANOREXIA ****
Sorry it has taken me so long, but my video on what caused my depression is finally here.
It goes into quite a lot of detail, so it’s definitely not for everyone.
I only recommend it to others who have or are still suffering from depression and anxiety, and have gone through experiences in their life that have triggered it or made it worse.
I talk about bullying, the death of a loved one, sexual assault amongst other life experiences that have shaped me into who I am today.
I finish off with what I have learnt from my experiences, and my advice to others who are going through the same thing.
Because it is so long, I have broken the video down to “chapters”, so you can pick and choose what you want to watch (though it will make more sense to you if you watch from the start), or if you want to watch one chapter at a time and get back to the video another time.
