People who don’t understand depression will never appreciate what one goes through. It tears you apart and makes you think so many thoughts you cannot control. I was ill, very ill. Suicidal. I really didn’t think I would survive. I even tried to end my life. I took 14 packets of codeine, but my mum found me and called the ambulance. They pumped my stomach and I survived.
In September 2017 my mum took me to one of Jerry Sargeant’s workshops. I felt like Jerry knew me. It was like he understood me without even knowing me. I really didn’t want to go but my mum dragged me along. Jerry brought me up to the front and asked me a few questions and then put his hand on my body. I don’t know what happened next, but I woke up on the floor.
After the workshop I went home and the thoughts in my head were gone. I felt completely different. In January 2018 I moved out of home and got a job in a local shop. My life is getting back on track, and I feel great. It’s like a dream.
It really is magic.
