Hi, I haven't been on here for a while After a recent awful 36 hours when I disappeared down the rabbit hole again, I (finally) realised that I needed to address things more systematically when I'm feeling better. As infrequent as episodes now are, though accompanied by a level of ongoing dissatisfa...

Something to offer activism?

Hi, anyone on here happen to be part of Extinction Rebellion or is an activist in other ways, and have thoughts on an idea I have? I really resonate with the points Russell Brand makes in his book ‘Recovery’ and elsewhere that the way in which we who've experienced MH issues, have been lumped with t...

Really struggling today

Trigger Warning. Shit, really struggling today. Had a real dip for two weeks which thought I was out of but feels a lot like back there just now.

Re: Hi

Checking in (so as to be seen)

Argh, black dog descending this morning. Prospect of a humiliating 'team-building' exercise today at work; that after not the most restful sleep... ☹️ Pleased I got a particular report done yesterday though. And came clean to my boss about the reasons I didn't complete my set hours last week - glad ...

Hi

(Argh, already don't know whether to post here or in 'Tell Me Something About Yourself' announcement; do correct me!) Hi, Just want to get started here really - as an attempt to secure more of a support network, as the lack of one has been severely exposed over the last couple of weeks. I think (tho...

Re: Tell Me Something About You

Hi, Just want to get started here really - as an attempt to secure more of a support network, as the lack of one has been severely exposed over the last couple of weeks. I think (though not completely sure) I'm out of it now but I came the closest I've ever been to taking my own life. This was a rea...
