Hiding behind the sofa
Recently I've been uploading some video blog entries on YouTube about my depression/SA/OCD, because of this people I know found the videos and now have some inkling of what I have. This is something I've been trying to cover up for the last 17 years. Recently I found that I needed somewhere to talk about it, hence this account, the blog and video-blog. Recently I also broke up with my girlfriend (today in fact, and it's ex-girlfriend now), it was a painful experience and one where I learnt that my inability to talk about all this outside of the indirect, informality of the internet hurts those around me. So, I think that the best course of action is to start to talk about it all, and not just on the internet. Step one is to tell my parents about it, it'll be difficult and I'm sure that it'll make things a bit harder for sometime, but at least everyone'll know where they stand. Anyway, that's it; the truth will out.
