Thank you. Thank you to everyone for their support and kind messages/mentions.

I'm sorry I haven't been as active on here as I have been in the past. I know there were a lot of people who enjoyed my posts and there were a lot of people who I enjoyed engaging with on here. 

As many of you know, I was going through deep depression and I just didn't have enough energy for 'engagement' anymore. Let me make this clear, the depression had very little to do with the media or the bullying I was experiencing both on and offline. The depression went deeper than a front page or a YouTube comment. However, I'd be lying if I said it did not affect me.

I have always been open about my depression and I'm not ashamed of it. I want to thank every single person who has written to me about their experience with depression. It takes courage to talk about mental illness and I hope that one day, it won't. I hope that, one day, we'll be able to talk about mental illness more openly and with ease.

Anyway, this is not about me, it's about YOU. Thank YOU for your support and your kindness. It means the world to me.

It will never be the right time to talk about depression, but it will always be the right decision to talk about it.

Here are a couple of things I wrote on my depression and suicide attempts.

Bloody good chaps and lasses! Bloody good indeed.

So, I've been out of the UK for far too long.

Great talk on cyber-bullying and our need for compassion in a society of headlines, memes, and trolls.

Huh... astonishing to think that exercising freedom of speech at the expense of someone else's entire life might be the wrong decision... We need more than compassion here. We need to enforce responsible reporting. It must be recognized that the power being wielded with the Internet can destroy people, and that power must be handled responsibly. My right to free speech and my right to make a buck shouldn't negate the rights of others. With a single error made by many, Monica permanently lost the chance for a normal life (whatever that is). Is that really the correct price for her mistake? Who gets to decide that? I sure as hell don't want that responsibility. When exercising freedom of speech creates a life sentence for another individual, some extra rules need to come into play.

I can relate to that so well. The story of my life. I had people in my life when I was a kid, but they were emotionally killing me and I felt like I was part of some experiment or part alien. Now my mom is a lot like me in many ways but she is happy and I am usually depressed but there is nobody else similar to me at all in my life - nobody I can talk to because my beliefs are too different and I would not be accepted, I might even become a target for violence. I hang out with some people but I can't be myself at all and it is perhaps no better or maybe it is worse than being alone because they keep talking about killing animals and make lots of racist and gay-hating remarks (homophobia is not a good term for it - that implies fear of gay people but so-called homophobes usually just hate gays). Remarks about killing black people are common. It seems like everyone I have become acquainted with well enough that we could be real friends behave in ways that are morally reprehensible to me and I can't really care for anyone like that as a friend. So I can be around people but I might as well be an alien.
