Anyway, she was saying that over the years she has accumulated a few tools that she keeps in her mental health toolkit and that the accumulative effect of using these different tools is that there has been some improvement in her mental health and she's coping better.
This is the same sort of philosophy that I've been using over recent years as well. I think there's no one single thing that is going to reduce my depression or make it go away completely, but that a combination of many different things is much more likely to reduce my depressive symptoms, so that I can get on with my life again. So I decided to try and throw everything at it, including the kitchen sink (just kidding!)
So I thought it might be useful to have a post on here where any of us can share information and ideas about the different things that we have in our toolkits, what has worked well for us and what hasn't! So I thought I'd set this up as a post this morning and come back to it whenever I can think of new tools to add to the list.
It would be great to hear from everyone else about this as well so don't be shy, please feel free to get stuck in and join the discussion!
Not putting pressure on myself to Ben better or back to the old Natalie, but reestablidhimg who I am now p,
