Thread Name: BS: sliding into a depression
Subject: sliding into a depression
I'm recognising the signs that I'm sliding back into depression, negative self thoughts, things that I used to enjoy are now a burden. 12 months after stopping anti-depressants I've accomplished more I would have dreamed possible then, new friends, performing in public, learning new instruments, but now it's starting to be too hard keeping it going. The only thing I want to do is sleep for 6 months. (& eat large amounts of chocolate). I know there are many people who have infinitely worse problems to deal with than me, one friend regularly self-harms to the point of risking death. I'm sure there are 'catters there who are fighting off the miasma - how do you do it ?? ??? Try to reduce some pressures, tell myself ?????? when I find I'm thinking "I'm useless" etc.
