About Sam

My name is Sam and I’ve suffered with clinical depression since adolescence.  I’m now in my late 30s and have experienced several severe episodes of major depression (i.e., “double depression”).  I also suffer from moderate social anxiety and PTDSD.  To add to the fun, I am a newly recovering alcoholic and child sexual abuse survivor!  Despite how it sounds, I’m a pretty happy person when not in the midst of a depressive episode and am incredibly lucky in terms of both family and career.  I have many hobbies, including: blogging (obvi), photography (all pics on this blog are my own, unless otherwise noted), reading, guitar, strength training, and scuba diving – mon préféré.  I’m married to a beautiful, caring, and patient wife, and we have a young daughter – my sunbeam through the clouds.
