I will definitely get to responding to each of you personally but to those of you who sent me lots of hugs and advice and encouragement on the "Depression" post I made 2 days ago I wanted to say a massive thankyou!
Its strange. I am often an advice giver here but when it comes to believing that me posting my woes and getting responses will make a difference - I have not really believed that in my heart.
But after you guys have been so caring and thoughtful I woke up yesterday and had one of the best days I have had in several weeks. I was up early and got a lot done in the backyard. I kept at it and even went back after I was exhausted and had had some rest. Admittedly I ate badly in the evening but apart from that it was a very productive day.
And I know it was ALL due to the smooshy hugs and caring posts I received from this forum,. I have no doubt about that and you have really opened my eyes on what some internet friends from half a world a way can do for someone like me.
Thankyou - I really REALLY mean that
