The Human Aspect of Einar Oddmund

After years of suppressing my emotions I felt ashamed and lonely. I had closed off to the point where I was grumpy and without motivation to live. My depression and hopelessness started when my parents divorced decades earlier. In the process of their separation I felt that my emotions and needs were forgotten and when I felt I couldn't handle them myself, I shut down and carried on with a mask.
