Thank You

Thank you to everyone who has replied to my posts. Made me realise yesterday was a bad day and it doesn't mean I have a bad life (or that I am bad). Feeling better today. I know another bad day is waiting for me, but I'll embrace it knowing that it will pass and I'll have some normality again (if only for a short while). I need to accept what I did, forgive myself and move on, because otherwise it only compounds my depression and makes me feel worthless. Living in the past and going over old regrets won't release your brain to heal itself. I had never thought of myself as ill, just weak and needy, but having someone point out that it is an illness means I can seek a cure (or at least improve my condition). Take care, xx.

  • Glad you're feeling a bit better today. I have good days and bad days too; important to remember when we're having a bad day that those not so bad times do exist as well! Me too I had always thought of myself as weak and needy and being told it is an illness does release the self blame quite a bit. Lovely to have you here.

  • Good on you Annie. You are not weak - you have depression. I agree totally with Gemma.
