Re: I have been sectioned - how do I support partner?

Hi - It must be really tough for both of you especially as you are young. However, things will pan out that way that they are meant to. Just go with your instincts when you can and let him make the decisions for himself. After all, if he loves you and accepts you totally, mental illness and all, the...

Re: Returning to Work: BiPolar type 2 ( Mixed, Depression, Anxiety )

Hi - I think I understand that. Am I correct in thinking its about being confident not just your own ability but the ability of the team to work together as one in order to achieve the end result. United together and taking equal responsibility but using each individuals best abilities to reach the ...

Re: How are you all feeling?

Hi Christabel You have first and foremost to look after yourself. You are the most important person. Try and remember that and do whatever you have to because if you are unwell then this will filter down through to everyone else in your life. So your priority really should be yourself. Just do whate...

Re: How are you all feeling?

Hi Christabel and everyone All we can do is try and keep surviving through all the shitty days. I get mine in blocks rather than one day to the next. It can be 12 - 18 months of going down, then being at rock bottom (suicidal state) then eventually the long slow climb back out to what I think is nor...

Re: Need an outlet

Hi You are certainly not alone in this cycle of drink and depression. Many people find solace in drinking either to help them forget or as a release from the depression itself. The only trouble is that it is a temporary solution and generally makes matters worse than better. I am sure you already kn...

Re: Why do I always undo my progress?

Hi I think you are very brave for getting back in touch. Remember you are the bigger and better person for sending a message. You never know what reasons there may be for her not replying. Just think about the times when you were unable to reply to someone's message when you were too low to do so. T...

Re: Too scared to take sertraline

Ha ha ha - and don't I know that there are plenty others out there. I have lost count of the amount of different medications I have been prescribed. Quite honestly I don't believe that any have had any effect on me apart from some that rendered me completely unable to sleep. I was averaging 1-2 hour...

Re: Am I going mad

Hi guys - Excellent advice from tensed up. I contacted a local MP in Peterborough when some Polish friends of mine who spoke only a limited amount of English unjustly had their twin daughters taken from them by social services when one of them was burnt and they took her to accident and emergency. I...

Re: i need a listening ear

Hello :D Sorry to jump in here and it looks as if you have built up a lovely friendship but just wished to add that I am here to try and help any fellow sufferers as I don't want my bouts of depression to have been suffering for no reason and a total waste. If I can help in any way then I am only to...

Re: Crossing a line

Hi I am so sorry to hear of your struggle. From what I have read you are quite right to worry about your own mental health in all of this too. It is so disappointing that you and your husband are not getting the help and support that you need. This is the case is almost every person here on the Sane...
