I have suffered from depression since I was about 15 on and off. Each bout seems to be worse than the one before.
The latest bout of depression started when my dad died 3 years ago suddenly and on the same day that dad died my uncle (mom’s brother) announced his engagement - the *****! I didn’t go to the wedding and neither did Steffi.
Things have been very strained between my uncle and the rest of the family since then.
