Some personal posts

This post gathers together links to some personal posts about the trauma related depression I have been suffering from. as I edit this in May 2018 there is something of a narrative arc now that wasn’t there when I started.

It’s partly a series of posts about friendship, partly about the background to and development of some debilitating mental health problems, charting the disintegration, the steps to counselling and therapy, and some early steps to what I hope will be a recovery.
