Re: Trying to tell my Mum about my depression...

Hi It is hard managing the emotions when your feeling so low but im speaking now as a mother. If my child felt as you do I would want them to confide in me. Your mum may not be surprised just relieved that you have been honest. I wouldnt re write the letter as I bet what you have said is clear enoug...

Re: Scary!

Hi lonley my main diagnosis is anxiety and depression but im no stranger to the mental health team, my crisis team just pushed to reduce how often they visited and yes it was a different person each time so there was no continuity.

Re: Mother issuess

Hi there oh no. Things are really difficult for you at present with your mum and there isnt an easy solution. Moving out is something to think on as acorn suggested but you need to weigh up how you would feel living on your own. With all the problems you have described living alone may cause you to ...

Re: Not doing well

Hi Anne I hope your symptoms are easing as it must be really scary seeing the things you have described. In intense moments of anxiety my mind has made me see horrible things so as acorn said I hope you have been able to seek medical support. With help and time there is a way out of the place your i...

Re: feeling really low!!

Hi there, ive been down the same path and I had to learn to distract my thinking. It becomes so set in the spiral down that I let it overtake. Im at a point where these thoughts dont cross my mind now. It hasnt been an easy process I just used to have the thought then I learnt to self talk it away. ...

Re: i broke up with my partner of 8 years please tell me if you think i made the right choice ??

It sounds to me that you have been under tremendous pressure and you have taken the only step available to you at this time. You will completely burn out if you struggle on any longer.

Re: Lost

Hi Alis I have to agree that unfortunately due to lack of funding the services are rarely accessable unless your having a major crisis. Im lucky in my area that there is a duty worker who I can call in times of crisis. I do have to say I found mind were really good and although I had to wait a few m...

Re: Biting the bullet. Ed trigger

Hi acorn I hope things for you have improved and I think that by sharing how you are feeling with us is self control. You are identifying the behaviour and trying not to do this. Remember to be kind to yourself too as you are so supportive to many of us here it really does help. In the two months I ...
