Today I am on my way to Zurich to see a friend I have not seen for a very long time! It may not look like it, but it is a real victory for me! When you feel so bad in your body, in your skin, guilty, ashamed etc. as I felt, it is difficult, almost impossible to go and meet others, even your dearest friends! Happy and aware of the progress made, I am!

But by the way, why these feelings of shame, of unease…? There was no reason for that! Yes, depression is really an illness. I measure the impact it has had on my life and on my relatives! I am so relieved to get out of it!
