Interview with Judy Fryer, mother who lost her son to depression

Facebook, Friends and Fate

I have been thinking lately, that I love the’ best of ‘ FaceBook! Not keen on the rubbish one sometimes comes across but maybe one person’s rubbish is another person’s interest…. who am I to say. The ‘ best of ‘ for me, is keeping in touch with friends and family worldwide. Viewing their photographs, getting snippets of their life and knowing how they are doing.

Another thing I love to do on FaceBook is to find all kinds of informative pages. My particular interest is Mental Health. I have learned loads from internet websites. It’s amazing what one can find out and what and who you can meet. Guess who I met in this way…..JON….he had written a great piece for Men’s Depression, an American website. I was fascinated by Jon’s story and it struck many chords with me. We have found we have much in common, although I am old enough to be his mother!

I feel as if we have struck up a friendship which I hope will last. A friendship born out of sharing our mutual heartache. Who would ever have imagined. Jon has already got a special place in my heart and I care about him. I get him and I want to see him flourish and prosper and reach the serenity he so much desires and deserves.Watch Froning The Fittest Man In History (2015) Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

I guess fate has brought us together. I hope I can be a great friend to Jon and make some small difference in his life. He has made a difference in mine already, he challenges my perceptions, makes me laugh and causes me to think carefully how I view certain aspects of life.

Long live our friendship Jon!

  1. Thank you so much Judy for your “first” guest post, when I read you Q&A with mensdepression.org so much of it rang true. Your sons name and a lot of the dates were so close to happenings in my life, 2003 in particular, I believe John and I were the same age. We are definitely friends now and I am very difficult to shake off. I am so happy I have made some differences in your life and you have definitely made some in mine.

    I make you laugh?… I’m always completely serious! Not!

    Long knife our friendship Judy!

    Keep smiling 🙂

  2. Thanks for this Judy. I’d “bookmarked” your mensdepression Q&A to come back to, and just read it properly for the first time today. You’ve been through so much.

    I was on Paroxetine (Seroxat) previously for anxiety reasons mostly. It really helped me. But I have heard stories of it not being suitable for some as well. I can relate to the “coming off” Seroxat. It’s well known to be very tricky (putting it mildly) coming off it. I had to come of it ultra-slowly. If I came off too fast I’d get some horrible side-effects, including unbelievably terrifying nightmares and electric shock sensations in my head (this is a documented side effect of coming off too fast!). Scary I know. It helped me loads though this drug, but I totally understand you and your family had a completely different experience with it.

    Take care


    1. G’day dude, not my place to comment on this one, although I was on seroxat for years…. But I just wanted to remind you you never answered my question about that Beatles song…. Hey ?. Peace out. Keep smiling 🙂

  3. Thanks for your comments Alex. Yes, I understand Seroxat can help people. However, it seems that if there is hidden Bipolar, then it is lethal. And yes, Seroxat should be stopped very very carefully. I read somewhere that the doctor recommended grating a bit off everyday….not cutting up but actually grating a thin bit off, it’s that hard to come off.

  4. Yes that’s right Judy. I saw a documentary on BBC1 years ago about a girl who was grinding her seroxat tablets into POWDER to come off them slowly!

    Jon – What Beatles song? Sorry if I am being a bit thick!!! Remind me please? 🙂 🙂 🙂
