New Year

So its NYE tomorrow, i'm not sure if i will be online during the day or not, so just in case im not, i just wanted to wish everyone a very happy New Year. I know many of us are dreading the ocassion, im sure it can't just be me. Depsite the low places most of us are in, or have been in, i know we all want things to be better for one another so my thoughts are with you.

'Don't be fooled be your emptiness - there's so much more room for happiness'

'Depression is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign that you have been trying to be strong for too long'

With all the love in the world. SA x

  • Hi

    Thanks for your good wishes to which I will add my own. Happy New Year everyone. We all need to remember that because we feel bad doesn't mean we are bad, because we are alone doesn't mean we are unloveable, because we feel sad doesn't mean our lives have to be sad. Being strong when we feel weak is sad, so let's just all be how we are and share that with one another.

    Right now I don't feel too bad at all, an hour ago I was in tears, yesterday I was happy listening to music all day, the day before I woke dreaming of the death of someone I love and felt low all day. Such is life, a roller coaster sometimes and at other times just a pervasive sense of feeling low. At least we are able to feel, some people don't even know when they are depressed.

    Happy New Year! It may even be happy.


  • Thanks you Sue and SA, for sharing your thoughts, i have been strong for so many years that i have found it hard to come to terms with the fact i am suffering from depression. It does seem like a roller coaster ride which i want to end. Tonight has been the hardest for a long time while reading the above gives me some comfort that i am not alone

    Here's hoping for a better year for everyone xxx
