A few hours ago the Guardian UK published an article by Nigerian award winning writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie where she shared the heartfelt story of her struggle with depression.
In classic Adichie style, the writer talks about her symptoms, the effect of her depression on her family and friends, and how the condition is often a writer’s scourge.
The article was taken down from the Guardian UK website.
Initially, the Guardian stated that the removal was due to a technical error.
Now, they have updated their site with the following message.
This article was deleted on 1 February 2015 because it was launched in error, without the permission of the author following a technical error. The Guardian apologises unreservedly to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Therefore, we have decided to remove the excerpts.
We encourages anyone going through depression to consult a doctor immediately. Depression is an illness. With proper care and therapy, it can be managed and treated.
