Depression is not a well discussed subject at any level least of all aviation.
I stand proud in admission that I have Depression I refer to it as a black cloud my black cloud has been with me a long time now
Medication keeps my levels at bay however I suffered a great deal in my youth my goal here is to open up a free discussion on Depression how it may affect you past or present or even a family member role and name changes will never be discouraged on the basis of it assisting in expressing a viewpoint all other guidlines relevant to the topic still stand
I urge those who have suffered from this severe mental state illness to find sanctum in a PM if public speaking is not your thing
In addition this matter is a sensitive subject for many
please remain conscious of others and there feelings when commenting
