Celina Caesar-Chavannes appeared tonight on CBC Power and Politics with host Rosemary Barton. She was there to discuss her experiences with depression, before and since becoming MP for Whitby and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Parliamentary Secretary.
Rosemary’s thorough, careful questions brought out responses I could relate to in my own experience – and even in present circumstances.
Sitting around in my “lounge pants” and t-shirt, unwashed.
Recognizing the signs of depression in these and other ways. Maybe I’ll do something about it, rather than wait for my scheduled psychiatric appointment.
It doesn’t seem like it’s enough to know what’s going on.
I do not feel like I am a danger to myself or anyone else. That’s probably important to note.
I really want to thank Rosemary and Celina. In this approaching season of “Let’s Talk.”
