I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
My sleep has been all over the place - today at work I sent an e-mail then almost dropped off to sleep, then typed the same e-mail and sent it again. The point of mentioning that was going to be that I didn't make the Parkrun - as I was wide awake at 6am but then nodded off and didn't wake up until 8.15 when it was just too late to get up and go.
SOLB - great to hear from you and great that things are going well. You know that I'm a Facebook spy - but it is great to see photos of your travels and things generally going well.
I'm having a mixed time of things - but overall at the moment doing a bit better than I was. I've now been referred for interpersonal psychotherapy - as they feel that family issues and issues from my past are key to my problems - which I would agree with so I feel it's the right outcome. It just feels like it takes so long to get anywhere. I was fearing though that the sessions I was having could come to an end without really being able to do enough for me so at least that won't be a problem.
Didn't know solby was over the pond. How exciting.
Last day in my job today!!!! Its a bit scary because I haven't got a start day for my new job yet, but I just wanted to get away and have a break. This morning I have an occupational health assessment with my new employer so I just hope that all goes okay then I'll be good to start in a couple of weeks.
LR - hope your therapy helps, it sounds interesting.
Great stuff Soupy!
When I get a job I'll be worried by the OH appointment - wibble
Approved fit for work.
I told them what caused it and what made it worse, but that I was now stable and knew how to recognise early warning signs. The nurse was very supportive and put me down as having reactive depression to exceptional circumstances. Phew!
The other thing to add is that she wrote down I have good insight and I think thats because I stressed how I know how to recognise the signs. Just in case thats a strategy anyone else might want to follow.
Going away to hotel for the night in a minute to celebrate leaving and my wedding anniversary which is today. I'm feeling good.
That's useful info Soupy, thanks. Have a fun night out
YAY!!! Soupy that's amazing
I'm not over the pond yet, I'll be tootling over a week Monday - I haven't organised anything though :-/
I have just been out for dinner, ate really normally and chatted and had a nice time. I am so ridiculously happy about it I might pop and spray you all in vegetarian sushi!
I have had a tough-ish time though, I'm having to change my meds over and am currently taking some tablets that the psychiatrist doesn't think will work because the meds they want to prescribe are very very expensive and unlicenced for depression ... I will have to take these ones just long enough for the side effects to become intolerable then swap back to the old ones while I'm in America but then will have the new tablets waiting for me when I get home.
Bear your improv stuff sounds so so positive for you.
Ooops to the oversleep, I keep meaning to do parkrun but either I am busy or don't want to get out of bed early enough to go cos the nearest is quite a way away
Lincolnshire remains a Parkrun free zone but there are a couple that have started up not far away. I did get in time this morning but instead joined the orienteering club guys for a run.
Well done on the OCD-beating dinner date SOLB. Really hope it goes well for you in the States.
Soupy - hope you're having a great well deserved celebratory weekend.
I have had a really hectic week and there are a number of problems going on. Even so, I'm hoping that maybe the current anti-depressants are starting to have some effect. Don't want to speak too soon as I thought the same about the citalopram after a few weeks but that came to nothing - but I am at least coping at the moment.
