Jane - me too I really dont know why cant put my finger on anything BUT mentally not as good as I have been :)

we all have lots of fantastic qualities - problem is we can recognise them for ourselves

perhaps its an exercise we should all do and then post - that way we might recognise our own good qualities from something someone else wrote

Today has been another low day.
I went walking for the best part of an hour. It didn't help much except to get me some fresh air and out of the flat...

being out in the daylight has done you more good than you realise
being outside in the daylight is good for us - especially if the sun is out - its all to do with the daylight on our retinas - its why some people are really affected quite badly in the winter with seasonal affective disorder
so you may not realise how good it has been for you but do try to get out in the light every day

hope tomorrow's better for you, liam! i've not been myself today.. i have no energy, my mood is really low.. all i want to do is sleep for the rest of the week. i'm having one of those days where i feel like i'm going to be overweight forever & like there's no way i'll ever be able to lose anything because i'm so unmotivated. & it's my bf & i's 3 year anniversary on the 18th (no idea why he's still with me).. which means i have to go to a fancy/busy restuarant! this is horrifying for an agoraphobic like myself. ugh. i'm stressing over it like mad. also forgot to take every dose of todays antidepressants which probably hasn't helped. i really just want to hibernate lol. sorry for the moan! ): hope everyone is doing ok x

Hi - I suffer from depression - started in my teens got quite bad recently but seems to be coming back with a vengenance. Am missing meals and not sleeping properly which doesn't help. Last time it was really bad I was advised by a medical professional to go through a book called Mind over Mood - it was very helpful - bit like a text book but very understandable, and I am going to be ordering a copy v. soon. Also been going through and see what foods are supposed to help and am going shopping for them tomorrow (most of it fits in with plan so that's good).

Also have my first work appraisal this week which doesn't help!

Anyway after that long ramble - hope everyone is well.

Was excited when I saw this thread.. anyone interested in reviving it? or is there anywhere I can go on the board for support / diet talk related to depression? I'm on anti-D's and am worried these will make it harder. :(

And another Jane too! :)
Sorry to hear you're going through a rough time at the moment. I'm a returner to Minimins - been coming here for years but just set up a new log in as in my brain fog I couldn't remember my old one.
I've been diagnosed with PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) which leaves me with severe depression 2 weeks a month. :( Am on prozac the last six weeks but it's early days yet.

I hope you feel better. I recommend counseling. It helps wade through the nonsense.

I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety last year and my doctor put me on 20mg of Citalopram.
its been a really tough year and although I'm starting to feel better I really wish I could just fight the depression.

Lately I seem to want to sleep all the time too, in the afternoons, early evening then at weekends I spend a lot of time in bed. I just feel so exhausted.
in the year I've been on the medication I have gained nearly 2 stone, after talking about the weight issues with my doctor he decided to lower my dose to 10mg and gave me a target to lose 7lbs by Xmas, which I just managed to do so I'm pleased.

I feel a little fed up lately though, feel like an out sider at work and don't really talk much at work and I just enjoy relaxing at home with my husband. I sometimes find it hard to socialise with people too, and I never used to be like that.
i worry about what people think etc.

Im currently following slimming world and ready for a great 2013 and just hope things can be better. If anyone wants to be friends feel free to message me xxx

It's nice to speak to someone who understands. I m quite miserable at work then fine as soon as I leave lol. I get on with most people there but some of them are so ignorant and that annoys me.
At the moment my biggest problem is the tiredness, even talking to my doctor he's not given me any ideas of what I can do to help it. I'm sat here now thinking how much I'd love to go to bed right now but it's only 5pm.

I'm here for you Hun if you need a friend xx
