A letter to the person who helped me with my depression

Dear Daddy,

I wanted to write you a letter as it is not always easy to put into words my appreciation for all you have done for me.

Firstly, thanks for believing in me when I sometimes did not believe in myself. You are one of the kindest most generous men I know.

Thanks for being my hero, my mentor, and simply my best friend, you never gave up on me, and you and mum sacrificed so much for me and you worked so hard to provide for me and mum.

Thanks for all the days and nights you sat with me when I was ill and the hours you spent with me.

Thanks for tackling the medical profession and getting me the help, I needed.

Sorry for the times I was rude to you and caused you stress, I truly did not mean it I was not in my right mind.

I was so scared and did not know what was happening to me. It was the worst time of my life.


You are simply the best,

All my love Claudette xx
