Re: Motivation

Hello Jdays, I feel just the same as you very isolated, I'm on my own all day as my husband is at work and no family near by. I too find it hard some days to even get out of bed. I find trying to establish some sort of a routine helps. Try to keep busy to prevent the thoughts ruminating. Do little t...

Re: Apalling NHS

Hi Vision, Like you I am feeling rather frustrated with the care I'm receiving. I was discharged in May despite me telling the psychiatrist I was having 3 episodes of depression a week and was feeling very unwell and I was just told to seek counselling and to ask my GP to up my dose. Now because of ...

Re: Going Backwards

Hi Vikki, I'm sorry to hear that you have taken a dip in your mood. I think that it's positive that you are able to notice this straightaway and do something about it. It's easy to keep plodding along thinking everything will be ok which is what I did for years and ended up making myself worse. Some...

Re: Bad day.

Hi, I wanted to reply to your post as it was as if I had written it myself! Your story is so similar to mine and I thought it would make you feel less alone if I replied to your post. Like you I have suffered depression for several years and I never sought help until 2 years ago when it was official...

Re: How are you feeling

Hi, I hate that question, so can relate to your feelings. I guess it shows people care, I find myself saying, I'm ok when I am not so find the question pointless. Always here too if you need someone to listen. I have found lots of comfort using this website.
Hope you are ok, take care.

Re: trig- Recurrent thoughts

Hi Fiona, I didn't want to read your post and then not reply. I have suffered from depression too for the last two years and several years undiagnosed. I have just come through a severe episode and I too was having suicidal thoughts but only for a short while. I found it worse when I was in the wron...
