Hello and welcome! This is where you can introduce yourself, tell us a bit about yourself – as much as you feel comfortable with - and why you have joined the SANE Forum. You may get a welcome from other newbies, or perhaps one of the more established members will stop by to say hello and welcome.

I joined saneline to get imformation and support from people who also suffer with mental health issues.This is a place where I can feel comfortable talking about my problems and know people will understand how I feel and what I am going through.When I log on to saneline I know I am not alone and not the only one with problems.

Hi, I'm a newbie. I joined Sane to get help and support as a sufferer of depression and anxiety, which has just reared its ugly head after a period of 3 years of being relatively free form it. I feel so alone and sacred and just want to connect with others who know what I'm going through and to give support to others who struggle.

Heya, I have just joined SANE after being advised it may help me by someone. Hopefully this will help me open up to being able to talk about everything.

Hi, I've only come across sane tonight, after looking on the internet. I have joined because i suffer from depression and anxiety, and it is taking a toll on me, and not alot of people understand. I also think it is very hard to get the right help, medication - yeh but the right psychological help is hard to come by... I know I am not alone on here. Im tired of feeling like this!!!!!

Hello
Thought I would come and see what Sane is about.
I suffer from something, but dont know what and dont know how to explain it. It comes and goes. It happened again over the last few days, I woke up feeling confused and disorientated. I couldnt think clearly or rationally, I couldn't hold a conversation, I felt extremely depressed, and physically drained. It's like a thick black cloud is in my head. It alters how I think and feel. It renders me useless for days and I lock my self away for these periods, then it clears and I start to feel ok again. The change in how I feel is dramatic. I've had this for maybe 20 years.
I've tried different anti-depressents from doctors for about 15 years, but stopped taking them as it doesn't help.
I dont know if it's depression, or some personality disorder. But its ruined and still is, ruining my life.
The difficulty I have is getting help. Today I feel better, if I book a doctors appointment tomorrow, it will appear as if I'm ok, which I probably will be, yet yesterday I was in the darkest place I could imagine. How can I explain this.

Hello All.

I joined because all I seem to have is contact with professionals who are determined to 'cure' me. I have never spoken to or met a fellow sufferer. I have been suspended from work for over a year, suffer from really bad anxiety and depression, my wife has left me because of all this. Doctors give me pills, but they haven't been there. I have joined in the hope of some mutual support, to read encouraging stories, and hopefully contributing what little i know, and to share my experiences.

Hi.
I've just joined-found SANE website by chance. Not so new to depression. Four years without medication - now I don't know what to do.
