Bob is a ****. Part 1

Hi all. My name is Gary and I suffer from a horrible debilitating illness called depression.

Sounds fairly innocuous right? I mean we all get depressed. We all have the occasional miserable thought. We all occasionally feel fat and stupid and useless and worthless. Well imagine feeling that way every second of every day or your life. That is depression. Depression can take over your entire life. There are a range of different symptoms. Here are some of the ones I have suffered myself

Regular feelings of sadness or despair. Feeling worthless. Feeling that everything is utterly pointless. Crippling isolation and feeling completely alone in the world. Very little energy. Lack of sleep. Getting no pleasure from anything

I’m not looking for sympathy here, although that would be nice after years of feeling like an outcast. I’m just telling it like it is. I’m just being real, like all those gansta rapper types would say.

So why this book? Good question really. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I had an urge to do it so I did it. I very rarely get an urge to do anything any more so I usual follow my urges when they happen. Plus I suppose this might be helpful to someone. Maybe it’ll stop someone feeling so alone or bring someone a crumb of comfort. If even one person feels better due to this, then that is enough for me
