We have come to a really important and heavy part of the story, discussing Marie’s bipolar disorder. Especially in this part her depression.
Depression affects many, many people. It doesn’t discriminate, it doesn’t care who you are. It makes you isolate yourself.
I had to dig into a dark place to write the upcoming episodes. I went to a place I wouldn’t wish upon anyone.
There is no shame in seeking help, I want to make this clear. If you find yourself relating to any themes discussed within TFTPG then please tell someone and seek help. No matter how small.
