Re: End of relationship - never loved me?

Hi lilbear9, You've clearly been through a lot during this relationship. I'm sorry things have ended up this way. I'm just a stranger on the internet so I will never really know this person or your relationship as well as you do, but it sounds like this person hasn't treated you as well as you deser...

Re: I'm just lost

Hey feelingmeh, Really sorry to hear you are feeling this way right now. You might not be able to see it but that voice saying "tomorrow", "tomorrow I'll do it, tomorrow I'll be a good person, tomorrow I'll shower and clean my house" is you coping as best you can at this moment. ...

Re: What is going on ???

Hi needingtotalk Having days where you feel less depressed or even "fine" doesn't mean there's nothing "wrong". You say you've been struggling for 3 years, and clearly you were very upset when you spoke to your GP. People's experiences of depression or other mental illnesses vary...

Re: I need help dealing with a friend

Hi bradjenkins, Some good suggestions have been made already. I'm not sure how close friends you are, but it's possible there's a lot more going on than you are aware of, if he has a complicated mental health history or other things going on in his life he may have just given you a simple answer rat...

Re: Mens sexual health Talks

Not sure if it's limited to age or gender, sexual health issues are awkward to talk about for anyone (at least I think so!). And I think it depends on your doctor and your relationship with them. Just have to remind ourselves that doctors will have heard it all before (or worse)

Take care x

Re: Panic attacks and suicidal thoughts

Hi paulc2630 Sorry you are going through a bad patch right now. I’ve found habit tracking helpful to understand what triggers anxiety and what behaviours help (for me that includes things like yoga, reading, minimising caffiene and keeping the house tidy) even little things can make a difference if ...

Re: Newbie who is falling and doesn't see it every stopping

Hey, Yeah, the blanket statement of "seek help" is often very hollow, as you say, what help? From who? Particularly as this statement is often portrayed as the "solution". So many T.V. shows that depict mental illness are resolved when the person "seeks help", as if tha...

Re: Hello

Hi needingtotalk, I can see from your response that you are planning to make an appointment with your GP which is great, well done! It can be really hard and scary reaching out to people so you've already made a huge step. I'd like to reassure you that the things mentioned in your post are enough th...

Re: Want to stop moping

Hi scarletohara, You don't need to apologise for feeling down, it sounds like you've had a big disappointment with your job, of course you would feel down about it. You don't need to minimise it by comparing yourself to others ("I know people have much bigger problems"). It sounds like you...
