I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Good to hear you're being so productive.  Hope the back is coping OK though. DIY is not my thing either.  Painting I can manage but for have not done any decorating for a long time now due to the depression.  It would certainly be a sign of progress if I could manage to get some done next year sometime.  As you already said to me though - small steps.

Afternoon peeps, how is everyone?

Is everyone ignoring you Bear?  Didn't realise you were in that much trouble.

Things are a bit strange at the moment.  Generally feel pretty rubbish but do just get the occasional good sign, such as feeling ok when out Monday night.  Likewise today when I found myself laughing and joking with someone on the phone at work that I wouldn't normally share a joke with.  Good signs I suppose and something to build on.

Hows it with you?

I'm having a bit of a rough week, which is why I've been quiet. I am still here and lurking though.

Hope you are all ok x

Yay everyone's home


I'm not in much trouble tbh LR - been through some tough patches this last year and a half and recovering gradually - definitely on the up but some way to go yet.


((( Frodo )))


I still feel unsure telling people about my MH issues - I do wonder whether I'd rather keep quiet.  It could be a bit tricky going back to my old job as my experience doesn't match up with the time I was employed there so questions may well be asked and I'd rather be straight with peeps

Just sad - we'll live. But hugs are ace. x

Hey - if everyone's about all at once.  Group hug?   ((((( Everyone )))))) - but particularly for Frodo!

Bear - telling people is a difficult one.  I feel that there are people that I would like to know about and other who I really don't want to know.  There's just the danger that once it's out there - everyone will know.  I'm sure a lot of people have found a lot of benefit in being able to talk to others though.  If not though - we're hear for you.

The 'trouble' I was referring to was being in trouble with Caz a few days ago.

I do this at times - make random unexpected references and confuse people!

I am still ok, just lurking.

That's better.

Checks spelling of group.

Still awake then SOLB.  I was thinking yesterday's birthday girl had got herself overtired and overexcited!

Made you smile.

That goes back years on the forums, not done it for ages!

I've never had a grope hug before now!

I have got myself overtired ... toy shopping with daddysolb to buy presents for his 10 grandkids today. Shops are awful but the minis are worth it
