Sandy Elton is a pseudonym. I don't use my real name because professionally I have discovered that my workplace, despite its best intents, is very judgemental. So I prefer to not run the risk of getting attention that may impact my ability to survive.
I write all sorts of literature, and there is always something on the go. As a software developer i write technical books. I write poems. I write about depression. I write some that may never see the light of day, and some that are so raunchy they may not be sellable!
I dont consider myself as recovered from depression. I manage depression and for a year now I have managed it well. Part of that management is recognising danger signs, and they simply remind me that recovery may be impossible, but management may look enough like recovery to be content with.
My absolute hero in life is Sir John Kirwan. I knew something was wrong when he was still an All Black. I just didn't know what. Hes an inspiration, and a wonderful figure for the fight against depression world wide.
Inside My Mind: I Feel Fine

Published: December 9, 2013
Poetry is often turned to by depression sufferers. As a medium for expressing thoughts and feelings, poetry is short and eloquent. It can reflect deep emotion, and act as an outlet for the mind. This book is my mind. From the days when I FEEL FINE meant "go away", to an inner happiness and a chance to reflect. Enjoy my poems, and may they help find your own inner peace.
