Re: How long does depression last?

Hey Minnie, Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I hadn't realised that you had messaged me. Thanks for checking in on me. I've been at least stable since my last post.

For how long can a depressive episode last? For how long between depressive episodes can a period of time without depression last? Can depression go away completely? Or at least for a substantial amount of years? Can depression be a lifelong illness where it is managed mostly but comes with its blip...

Re: FLAT

Hey M, Lovely to hear from you. How are you doing? The goal and reward idea could work really well for helping me hold down my shifts. Thank you. I spoke openly with my boss this afternoon. Outcome is, I HAVE to finish each shift regardless of how bad I am feeling and I HAVE to give at least 24 hour...

FLAT

More so over recent weeks have I been feeling downright fed up. I can describe it as needing to let out a heavy sigh and feeling "'what's the point?" Sometimes I just want to go to bed, pull the duvet over my head and tell everyone to just leave me alone. Once a week, I have a day off and ...
