Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Fuckey, fuckey, fuckey, fuck!

Wanted to try and stop avoiding whatever is trying to rise to the surface of my brain. Istead, spent the day avoiding it in an extreme manner. Fuck.

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Thanks Deb I agree being resourceful is a big help. Depression and anxiety are liars, never more so than when they convince you there are no alternatives. I equate being resourceful with recognising that there are options and that change is certain, despite what my mind is telling me. Diary Entry Mo...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Hmmm. Nearly a month since my last diary entry. I've not been well for a few weeks. Really struggling with both depression and anxiety. Still managing to go to work although I have had to make adjustments both at work and at home. Struggling to do anything. The upside is that I have identified yet a...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Thanks Deb

I think you are spot on but I don't know how I deal with it either. I wish I could accept but if you spend the first half of your life reinforcing and internalising negative messages about yourself and others for reasons of self protection it is so hard to let them go.

Thanks again.

Re: Hi

Hi Ben I set out a load of information and advice in a couple of old posts. They were set up to help peeps new to depression / anxiety get a head start in what reputable help and self-help is available. http://sane.org.uk/support_forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=30615 http://sane.org.uk/support_forum/v...

Re: Doctor told me it’s my fault

Hi again! Many people do find a way to climb out of that deep, dark, hole. Unfortunately, I am not one of them :lol: but even that is not the end of the world, I focus on living with it, accepting it is there, managing it and guess what? I even manage to enjoy my life and have fun, constantly toppin...

Re: Hi

Hi Ben and welcome. Many people here will 'get it' which helped me lots but it is a quiet forum. What helped me most with that was face to face mutual support groups. There will be some in most towns. Your nearest MIND outpost or GP surgery can usually recommend one. Local MIND offices sometimes run...

Re: New today and lost

Hi Feel free to say as much or as little as you like here. I know that fear of opening the floodgates well, it can help to have the support of a counsellor / therapist to guide you though the first wave but that isn't always necessary. The important thing to remember is that memories and emotions ar...
