Video: Depression Before the Holidays

A few weeks ago, a woman I knew only on Facebook, Diana Keough, arrived at my door with her savvy business and production partner, Matt Clement, to do an interview of me about depression around the holidays. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I felt guilty for exercising some of my boundaries skills by saying no to flying to Atlanta. (So they came to me!).

No more than 15 minutes after they arrived with their heavy luggage did my living room transform into a professional production set: fancy lights, backdrop, an expensive (big) camera, and so on.

We talked for like four hours (two hours spent on poor Eric: “What’s it like living with chick who has her period, or acts like she does, all the time?”), and then they took off.

The result is an incredibly polished video (much more so than my modest productions on youtube!) that you can view by going to ShareWIK.com, or by clicking here.

Diana’s website is a fascinating project. ShareWIK stands for “share what I know.” She is a survivor on so many levels, and is passionate about creating a forum in which people can help each other by sharing their truths, the precious pearls of wisdom learned after illnesses, tragedies, frustrations, and victories.

I sincerely applaud her dream with ShareWIK, as I recognize her passion coming from the same energy with which I launched Beyond Blue.

May you succeed in your mission, Diana! We’re rooting for you!

Again, here’s the video.
