Susan Boyle: My depression torment
Susan Boyle has spoken out about her depression
Susan Boyle has spoken out about her depression and blamed it on bullying at school.
The Britain's Got Talent star says that she suffers from anger and mood swings as a result of a "hellish" childhood.
According to The Sun, the chart-topper told an Australian TV show: "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."
She said: "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."
Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan, 48, is set for a third week at the top of the charts with her new album I Dreamed A Dream.
