I have had mental heath problems for many years.
I have had very good councelling over the past year and during this councelling i am just starting to get in touch with those parts of me that went through difficult times, and what I need or might need to start making a recovery.
I had two nervous breakdowns, one in 2001 and the other in 2002, both requiring sectioning to a mental health unit, following the breakdown of a relationship. There is also an emotional link between that time and the time i was having difficulties coping educationally at school as an 8 year old, and having to go down a grade.
Through councelling and medication I now feel that my troubles are starting to lift a little or at least that i get a sense or feeling that they might be or that there is a possibility that they could be.
By troubles I mean emotional problems such as anxiety and feelings of inadequacy.
I have been reading many of your questions and blogs and really feel for you all, and will do my best to help where i can.
