When can I see you? That’s the last email my friend Sally Brampton sent to me and I still can’t believe I’ll never get another, because Sally took her own life, on her own terms, early last Tuesday morning – while the rest of us were asleep and she yearned to be. I moved house not long ago – just another half-mile further along from Sally’s place on the East Sussex coast in St Leonards-on-Sea – but, nonetheless, she hadn’t been here yet. Described by former colleagues as ‘smart, tough and stylish’, Sally Brampton pictured was a fashion writer and leading advice columnist who wrote candidly about her battle with depression. I was desperate to show her my new garden; she is – damn, was – enviably green-fingered and I knew she’d love it. She’d missed my book launch in April, sending me a text to explain why: that damn ‘black dog’ of depression was snapping at her heels again.

A successful magazine editor and prize-winning journalist, Sally Brampton launched Elle magazine in the UK in Copyright Date, Sally Brampton lives in London and is a highly acclaimed novelist, columnist, and journalist.
The beginning of the book is a tough read. It’s a thick mucky quagmire groping in darkness through a labyrinth without direction or any desire for that matter. Once the author begins discussion of her childhood the book becomes more clear and is easier to read. Any medicine that creates withdrawal that extreme should be classified as a class A drug. I wonder if someone ever asked if they could assist her, or if she needed help or just a hug?
I couldn’t imagine seeing someone crying as she described and not approaching them. She concluded, “after an hour of fast walking, I always feel better. Our emotions and or old unresolved feelings can cause neck pain, or a back ache or a throat monster, which is what she had. It is a physical state. How are you feeling? I disagree with this.

Please refresh the page and retry. But it was also a blow for the tens of thousands of people whose lives were touched by her writing. She took her own life on Tuesday, walking into the sea at St Leonards where she had lived for the past six years. I met Sally 30 years ago. An editor-in-chief at only 29, after already gaining a degree from St Martins College of Art, winning the prestigious Vogue Talent Contest and becoming fashion editor of The Observer, she was the warmest, funniest, coolest, most stylish person most of us had ever encountered.
Her staff were all a bit in love with her; hugely influenced by her opinions and wardrobe choices. A renowned fashion expert, she brought together a stellar team who created genre-shattering fashion pages. She was so much more than the caricature of a fluffy fashion magazine editor. B ut beneath the fabulous black leather jackets and lycra dresses, and away from the Groucho Club, there was a vulnerability.
Brought up in exotic countries as her father was a Shell oil executive, even in her 30s she admitted to me that, in spite of outward appearances, she sometimes felt overwhelmed by sadness and emptiness while in the middle of a crowd of people.
About Greener Books
In the past decade, I have made two gardens — not including the gardens I have made for friends. It is my most passionate hobby so, short of moving house in order to obtain a new garden, I offer to make one for people I love. For me, a garden is a consuming relationship so I only do so for people who cherish me and, in return, will cherish their garden. However, it is with my own garden that I have the most passionate relationship. Both the gardens I made for myself started as a wilderness of overgrown trees and shrubs and tired, patchy lawns.
EXTRA steps have been taken to try to prevent missed opportunities like those that led to the death of agony aunt Sally Brampton.
Thursday, 18 April Suicide. I know I said I wouldn’t be posting on this blog but there are things that, occasionally, I want to say. And today, it is about suicide. It scares people — both those who are not suicidal, and those who are. When I am suicidal or have suicidal ideation, as it is more benignly phrased by psychiatrists although it all comes down to the same thing; you want to die I call a friend, who I met in the loony bin, ten years ago.
We have been close ever since, not bound through mental illness, but simply because we love each other. Anyway, I call him, sobbing that I want to die. Which makes me laugh. As black as it sounds, we discuss our various options. He is quite keen on cars, smashing into a wall, or driving off a cliff. I am vaguer in my options. All I know is that I want to die or, rather, that I don’t want to be here any longer. There is a difference as anybody who has ever looked into the black abyss of severe depression will understand.
We do not want to be dead.

A successful magazine editor and prize-winning journalist, Sally Brampton launched Elle magazine in the UK in But behind the successful, glamorous career was a story that many of her friends and colleagues knew nothing about—her ongoing struggle with severe depression and alcoholism.
Brampton’s is a candid, tremendously honest telling of how she was finally able to “address the elephant in the room,” and of a culture that sends the overriding message that people who suffer from depression are somehow responsible for their own illness. She offers readers a unique perspective of depression from the inside that is at times wrenching, but ultimately inspirational, as it charts her own coming back to life. Beyond her personal story, Brampton offers practical advice to all those affected by this illness.
