I’ve decided to retire from sadness. I’ve dedicated much of my life to it and I think it’s right that I leave whilst I’m at the top level. I have been both incredibly depressed and incredibly depressing for 36 years of my life. It’s time to start a new chapter of my life. I would like to thank my coaches; rock,blues and melancholy. I could never have been a champion of depression without you. It’s only right that as I pass the torch to the next generation that I say that sincerely I hope that they have as awful a time as I did.
