Popular news reader Hugh Edwards described how depression could not get out of bed.

The 60-year-old BBC News told Men’s Health UK that his depression involves anxiety and tends to “hit” him with a “strong wave and then go away”.

The Welsh TV presenter, who has worked for the BBC since 1984, revealed in a documentary last year that he had had bouts of depression that had left him “bedridden” since 2002.

Speaking to mental health agitator and columnist Alastair Campbell, he said: “I am pretty clear that I have suffered – and am suffering – from depression.

“It’s not anxiety, although it involves anxiety, but it tends to hit me in a strong wave and then go away … I think at least now I know when I’ll get into that phase.

“Your mind gets into a place where you don’t want to do anything. You can’t make any decisions.

“What you usually love, you fear. You come to work and obviously do professional work, but you kind of make your way through it.

“And, of course, if it is very bad – as it has been several times in 20 years – you can not work. During the worst thing I had, I couldn’t get out of bed. “

He spoke to the former spokesman about realizing and accepting that not everyone would like it.

“If I think 20 years ago I got a job at The Ten, it took a long time to stop having thin skin about people who have pop.” Why is this Welsh guy writing the news? Why doesn’t he go back to Cardiff and do the news there? All he does is read the car! Get rid of it! “

“You can laugh at that, but if it’s every bloody week. I’m not used to it. I’m used to being told I’m a genius. My mistake was that you could please everyone. And you can’t.”
