Thankyou

Thankyou all so much I just popped on the site this morning and seen all your responses and that made me feel so blessed . I've been in a very dark place lately and my councillor say it could get darker while Ian working through my counselling and that's why I was going to come of line for a while because I don't want to put on you lovely people then I seen your msgs and now Ian confused what to do

You don't put on anyone Pamela. We are here to support each other - and that would make us a bit redundant if nobody needed support! We switch around too, so those doing the supporting today will be looking to others for support tomorrow. We are all in this together. Take care. x

I completely agree with the others - we are here to support each other and for each of us some days are better than others and each of us at times will need support. You can always come here for support, advise and if we can help we will. Take good care, TADxx

What your feeling is a symptom of your depression.Well your not putting on me at all.Ithink you would be surprised at how many of us have or are suffering wth depression.Having had depression all my life the one thing I do know is that,as you open and close the doors of our issues,sadnesses,anger,worry etc.One day one of those doors has a chink of warm sunlight behind it and that is such agood feeling ,things will improve for you.Be patient and keep comunicating with us your loved ones it really does help.NoGuilt.Sending big huggs.Janexx

You have my big support, Pamela. Believe me depression is so common. I am experiencing it myself. I am under treatment from the doctor, and am having counselling. It is a very real and scary thing to happen, and talking about it you can really helps. I haven't said much because I hoped it would go away but bringing it into the open helps. Pamela, if you want to PM at any time, please do. Big love from Annieseedx

History tells me that Winston Churchill called his depression, his Black Dog. Look it in the face and put your fingers up, or least this is what I am trying to do. His famous V sign in reverse.
