I had known nothing about post-traumatic stress disorder, or even depression. I realised my memories of that whole period of my life were blurry because I had put so much into trying to forget that one weekend. I started to see that my drive for success and what I saw as the ‘perfect’ life stemmed from these horrible, misguided feelings of being a failure. Getting pregnant in my teens had only fuelled that warped view of myself. My experience was behind my need to be in control in all aspects of my life, and I also recognised that I had spent my life holding back from close friendships, terrified that someone would find out my secret and think badly of me. I finally recognised that I had been struggling with depression since my teens. Mental illness had never been talked about in my family, in my community, or even in my later, corporate life. I wouldn not have known what to look for. It took a long time for me to pull myself together. At first, I tried St John is Wort and other natural remedies.
