Depression : A view from the inside

Six or seven years I was diagnosed with (moderate) depression for the first time in my life. A couple of years after the first bout of depression I was diagnosed with (severe) depression. A few weeks ago I was once again diagnosed with depression.

I'd like to share my experiences to try to give an insight into this often well-hidden illness.

Winter Stabcon 2014

After missing the two previous Stabcon weekends I was determined to return and get back to the routine of attending.

I arrived just before registration opened at 2pm to give myself as much game time as possible over the weekend.

Being early gave me time to check-out my room and drop off baggage. When I entered the room I thought I'd been booked into a hostel by mistake.
