Al Porter talks Depression

Al Porter shares that he’s on anti-depressants and talks about the stigma attached to taking them.

“I am going to tell you something now that I didn’t even tell my mam until two hours ago, when I rang her because I knew I was going to say it to you.”

“I went to a doctor, I wouldn’t even go to my family doctor, I was afraid to go to my own doctor. I went to a doctor in Carlow, because I wanted to get out of Dublin, who said ‘listen you need antidepressants’ and I never thought I would be that person.”
