Hi Lulu Thank you for your warm welcome. I'm up and down a lot at the moment as I'm changing my antidepressants. How are you today .Sue

Hello Sue :-)

Glad you are not doing to bad and as you have said you have a good idea why you are feeling up and down because of the med change , hopefully in a few weeks that will all have settled down but meanwhile you can always come on and talk to us whenever you need a listening ear :-)

To be honest I am not doing great , since the COVID19 my anxiety has gone through the roof , but a day at a time and keep talking with people like you helps me get through :-)

Thank You for asking :-) x

Do you take medication for it ? I find its either anxiety or low mood that's bothering me .Not nice .

My MH problems are so complex , it seems what I don't have would be quicker to answer but I have a massive med fear which even though I have tried I just cannot take them :-(

A lot of how we feel I think if we can accept it , tell ourselves it is ok , then it stops feeding the anxiety , the more we let it play on our minds the more the anxiety takes over , easier said than done I know :-) x

I know what you mean in that things are never straight forward. If they were we probably wouldnot have all these problems in the first place .I find it almost impossible to accept myself for what I am but know I need to do that but as you say, easier said than done x

We have to try and everyone that suffers with MH problems are the kindest people you can meet and so strong even though they may not feel they are working through it every day like we do :-) x
