Re: Hello Im new here.

Hi I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. I did write a long response but my net connection cut out and I don't have the time to rewrite. I wanted to know why you feel achievement is important. I also said that, as distressing as rejection is, you have proved that you are capable of love and that takin...

Re: Feeling scared

Hi Deb How are you doing? Hope the fear has eased or that mindfulness techniques are helping you distance yourself or defuse from it ( that's what I'm doing.) Sleep is a bugger isn't it? The NHS has some great advice on sleep. Ritual really worked for me. https://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/insomnia/Pages/b...

Re: Alone.

Hi Em! Glad you liked the joke, it's the cleanest one I know, maybe not the best idea to use it for a reading at mass. :lol: Glad you are getting good support from CMHT. The therapy sounds like it is going really well. It also sounds like you are accepting it is a process, no SuperEM instant solutio...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Hi Em! You are most welcome. I'm ok. Struggling without pills but a new scan in a few weeks may help convince dr. to prescribe again. I'm at best flat but going through the motions, getting up, getting to work, socialising a bit. Using everyday mindfulness to distance myself from my feelings and do ...

Re: Alone.

Oh Em! So much self loathing and self sabotage. I feel for you HUGS. Anorexia must be so weird. I know you know that you won't feel better mentally without looking after yourself physically, I know you see the pattern of rejecting services that may help, I know you know that every time you decide to...

Re: Personal Responsibility

Hi Isap Yeah, Ketamine has gotten a lot of attention. I like the idea of it because, unlike the potential treatments derived from LSD or MDMA, it is not about breaking down mental barriers during therapy or about generating a strong therapeutic relationship. Instead it is believed that Ketamine acts...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry

Turned out my inability to do much yesterday was due to exhaustion. I discovered this when I was asleep within 5 minutes of getting home.

Woke up 3 hours ago and have been pottering since. Time to do something constructive before the tiredness overwhelms me again.

Personal Responsibility

I have recently heard real world comments about depression / anxiety being weakness of character or a choice because it is easier to say you are ill than to deal with life's stresses. This is b*ll*cks of course. I am certain everyone here, like me, has fought and struggled for years, showing deep st...
