Well done for seeking a bit of help and support, hopefully things will start to pick up for you. It's very hard when you suffer with depression and most people don't understand that you cann't just pull yourslef out of it, so I think you have deffinately done the right thing. Hope it goes well and you start to feel more uplifted.


Trying again!!!
(((Hugs))) hun ~ as a fellow Crohns sufferer I know how you feel ~ well done for seeking help, it will do you good to talk and as Carolyne stated it's not as simple as pulling yourself out of it, depression is not as easy as that ~ I know ~ hope you start to feel better soon xx

Well done to you Ronnie, for finding the courage to seek some help for your problems, it is so much better to face up to them than to bury them inside and make yourself ill.

Good luck to you. X

Asking for help is extremely liberating and I was scared the day I met my psychologist for the first time, so much so my throat swelled up so I couldn't speak much. But along with the nerves was a sense that a huge weight was about to be lifted from my shoulders. It really will be an amazing experiencefor you, but just like losing weight it will be small steps of a longer journey.

I look forward to hearing how you get on. You may not believe me right now (I know I don't when people tell me this) but you are incredibly brave to leave that comfort zone and seek this new direction.

Asking for help should not be considered a defeat either. Taking the steps to talk to someone will help you air things that are on your mind, but also to find a solution for yourself through talking.
You do sound more positive from your recent posts Hun, so look forward to Friday.
