Re: Trying to get in to a Pshyciatrist

Hi there, If your GP will not refer you for counselling with a mental health expert, you may need to consider doing it privately. Have a look online for counsellors in your area, if possible, research them to discover if they have experience treating people with anxiety and depression. If you think ...

Persevering... Just About.

Hey guys, So a few weeks back I met with a career advisor who said she could find me part-time work, she also told me about Employment Support Allowance, which enables me to work a few days per week and still get financial support. I suffer with anxiety, depression, and very low energy; I've worked ...

Re: A Helpful Method for Better Sleep

Thanks Maisi, I like your method too. Sometimes it just helps to switch the mind off and let naturally random thoughts come.

A Helpful Method for Better Sleep

Hi all. I wanted to share something with you, I've discovered a useful way to turn off my overactive mind at night and sleep well. Perhaps this will work for you too! Before I discovered this method I would lay in bed and think, thought would turn in to worry - imagining worst case scenarios and suc...

Re: I dont know where to start with my lovely son

I'm so sorry Angelique, it must be incredibly difficult to watch your son not only suffer with his condition, but his relationship breakdown as well. He's having a tough time, and his pride may be affected as well if he's having to rely more on you. Have you spoken to your GP? They may be able to re...

Re: Just feel like letting it all out.

I'd just like to add one more thing. Staying in the house is so tempting when you're craving comfort, but I'm sure I don't need to tell you that getting out does help. If you can get yourself into nature it's a real bonus. There's nothing quite like the sound of the wind in the trees, the birds chir...

Re: Just feel like letting it all out.

Hi Lucia (hope I got that right) Listening to you list your symptoms is like reading a page from my own diary. It's a horrible place to be I know, and I'm sure you relentlessly wonder why everything seems harder than it ought to be. I have tried anti-depressants on three occasions. The first few tim...

Re: Hi, I'm new. Here to be inspired - and to inspire, perhaps

Thank you Pauley. It's nice to just offload to be honest, I don't much mind if I only get a few replies. Hopefully I can help some others with a word, or just an ear. Thanks again.

Hi, I'm new. Here to be inspired - and to inspire, perhaps

Hi, I'm Drew I'm a 32 year old man and I've suffered with anxiety and depression for most of my adult life. I was always a bit of a misfit when I was a lad, I never felt passionate about anything, I didn't think about the future, I was smart, but I found no reason to apply myself. I drank and did dr...
