I have been suffering on-going serious Depression for many years now. Sadly in the UK the UK Mental Health Support Services are in many areas abysmal. I have had little or no input worth mentioning and have steadily become more withdrawn and isolated.
I do not go out hardly ever, spend most of my time in bed and continue to feel that my previous energetic, rich and full life is passing with each day. I also suffer a number of physical conditions, some potentially serious which does not help the situation. I have many days where l feel that l am living in “a parallel universe” to others.
This site is amazing and allows self expression and so much positivity abounds! Shame we cannot all get together! I know l have to find a way forward to survive and that for me l believe is moving (nightmare thought) but flipping my life over in a new and different environment. Reducing the amount of physical baggage l am carrying and live more minimally. Concentrating on trying to put one foot forward at a time and sustaining it before l try another
I know there are so many “beautiful people and souls” out there wondering how to get through the next 5 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day and my heart goes out to you all! I believe WE CAN BEAT THIS THING TOGETHER! Regardless of whether we have Mental Health Input or not. I am trying at the moment to look at my “use of time” and am about to set myself a written list of life’s basics within a basic routine and sustain it.
Really sending out heartfelt thoughts to you all. We HAVE to learn to BELIEVE again and we can TOGETHER! I am willing to give it my best try, are there others who have had enough of being “sick and tired of being sick and tired”? I would love to hear from you! Chloe
