3 April 2016 at 7pm my life as I know it would change forever and change in a very positive way! You see on this day I built up enough courage to actually open up and admit to suffering in silence. With the help of a good friend Ger Walsh who is a talented videographer in Dublin I was able to get my message across in a video about my battle with depression over the last 10-12 years.
What happened next was unprecedented, my post on Facebook received thousands of shares, thousands of comments and likes and a million views in the space of a few days. Shared by media outlets all over the world and led me to speaking on TV3 Ireland AM and RTE Claire Byrne Live. Why me? Why did my story about our struggle go viral? For me it doesn’t matter why, its more important that it just did.
