This is my first day out on here! what better way than to start by writing a blog. Firstly the forums have quite possibly saved me today, isn't it a great feeling to know that other people are out there, and that your not on your own. I am going though a particularly bad depressed episode, I have suffered with Depression and Anxiety for more than ten years. It never ceases to amaze me how well I can hide it, only now am I starting to admit to friends and family and even some work colleagues that I have it. I always think I am just making it up and am petrified of peoples responses, but it is heartwarming that so many more people understand it than you think. I have never known the cause of my moods, low self- esteem is probably the main trigger. In the words of Jimi Hendrix 'I know what I want but I just don't know how to go about gettin it', for any Hendrix fans thats 'Manic Depression' on Axes Bold as Love album. I so want to enjoy my life, but something always gets in the way. Right now I don't have the answers but I think its high time I started to accept what I have, stop feeling ashamed and embarrassed by it, and fight the bloomin thing!!

To be continued.....
