  • Peter Dancer

Its kind of rebellious in a way."...

    I now have very good immunization against depression; I have healthy daily routines, I am building a small business idea that engages my skills, passions and preferences. I know the early warning signs of depression and I have good tactics I put in place that seem to be working for me right now.
