Hi everyone, it has been quite some time
I've just had a glance at some posts and am seeing lots of new names and fewer of the old - hoping that everyone is still okay and that newer folk are nicely settled in.
I haven't been on the site in months, I think it's mostly because I haven't wanted to face the fact that I am, in fact, depressed. A lot has gone on in those months and some of it I would much rather forget, but the main thing is I survived it.
I stopped taking my medication without consulting my doctor (probably shouldn't have, but it really hasn't made much difference), I have still occasionally resorted to self harm, I did 6 sessions of CBT with an 'expert' who was a nightmare & other than all of that just about have survived - I feel like this is still an achievement.
How is everybody else doing?
