Susan Boyle battles depression
Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle has admitted that she has battled with depression for most of her life.
The Scottish singer has previously admitted that she was bullied as a child by both her peers and teachers. She has now revealed that this treatment led to a constant fluctuation in her moods and outlook.
The Sun quotes Susan as saying:
“I can be up and down like a yo-yo. I can be depressed.
“I know I’m taking a big chance telling people this but you have to be honest. I used to be made a fool of at school.”
“It was psychological bullying and that leaves a scar and it also cultivates a lot of anger.
“When people are a wee bit slow others pick at them. My life was made absolute hell.”
She told and Australian TV programme:
“When I went on Britain’s Got Talent I said this is a chance to prove myself.
“I can be a bit funny after being tired but whenever I go on stage I forget all about that.
“I feel I’ve got a communication with the audience. I’m told I’m a different person on stage.”
