Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Deb I used to work with men- they were much easier- said what they thought. Have some toxic colleagues but am able to a certain extent stay away from them. I am out and about quite a lot with my job so don't spend too much time the office which is good for me. We have new colleagues starting so t...

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Debs, Hope you and your dog are doing okay in the heat! I really need to buy a fan as the humidity at night has been really high. I have had a lazy weekend after a busy week (where my irritation with other colleagues quietly developed)- I managed to pop to Pets at home yesterday when the football...

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Deb, It is strange how much it helps to know you are not alone. These mental illnesses are really clever. I often feel like my thoughts trick myself- as i just get in place some strategies and then something comes along to completely throw me. I get frustrated as when younger i was actually a goo...

Re: What to do about feeling down

No worries Jody- that's when this website is helpful. Obviously all of the advice should be checked in with your Doctor. I am finally feeling much better as my meds have kicked in- i will stay on them for 3 months as i don't want to drop- then go to discuss with the doctor- and listen to her properl...

Re: What to do about feeling down

I have been taking meds for two years now and like you am not too keen on taking them. i have been trying to reduce them as when i feel better i decide i don't need them or should try and reduce the dose. My GP is nice and will advise but then take my lead. This year I started on a high dose then re...

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Deb, I'm glad our sharing is mutually beneficial! I am grateful for your time and wisdom. I also appreciate that i am lucky with my experiences really as i am still able to function - i sometimes think if i was not able to function then i would not have let myself get into such a state. As long a...

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Debs, I hate it when people use the site for adverts- i think it is so wrong. I remember when i was new to the site and just beginning to open up when someone posted an advert- and i felt like my personal space had been violated. How dare they! Thank you so much for reading my posts and the reass...

Re: How much is mental health and how much is normal?

Hi Deb I definitely feel the good weather helps. Sunshine is so powerful. I have a mood light that i use in the winter and i do think it helps a bit. Well done on the 10 minute meditation. I haven't meditated for a few days. I have been listening to podcasts at night- i find this helps to occupy my ...

Re: Why do i have to fake it?

Sorry to hear that you have lost contact with lots of people when you stopped faking it. I do find that the better i feel the more real i am in the 'real world' and the smaller the discrepancy between the me at home and me outside. I know that real friends would accept me and my MH issues but i have...
