I'm new - just signed up. Never tried this before but what's to lose? You seem like a friendly, helpful group so a big hello from me.

I'm so up and down at the moment and detest wallowing but sometimes it's good to wallow I suppose. There's a lot of good stuff happening in my quiet life and I feel guilty for feeling this way. Hopefully being on here may help.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Annie nice to meet you and welcome to the site. You are right - we are a friendly bunch and hardly ever bite :)

Have you been diagnosed with depression? Are you on any meds/counselling? If so that might help you. We all understand about depression here so if there is anything we can help you with or you want to share just jump in with it and we will do our very best to support and help you. Bev x

How lucky am I Bev? Firstly my dearest friend and immediate neighbour pushed a beautiful card through my door ( She always understands when I am 'captured by aliens' bless her) Then your lovely message which is so welcoming arrives. Thank you and enjoy your party. Annie 👽 x


Sorry forgot to answer your question - yes I take Duloxetine which works most of the time but recently, despite good stuff happening, I seem to be struggling. I'll get there Bev we just have to keep fighting I suppose. My story is a loooooong one goes back many years and many significant moments. The problem is me letting it grab me like this. At my age I can't afford to waste the days haha Thank you for your interest. Annie
