On the blue light point. Anyone can download a piece of software called f.lux for free.  It mirrors daylight and after two days or so of using it you are completely unaware that you are using it. Blue Light is a huge problem, even for people who don't think it is for them. I recommend everyone uses f.lux immediately. 

Just need something similar for phones...

This thread is strange timing. 

I'm struggling a bit now. Not told anyone how much and I think I'm behaving pretty upbeat wherever I go. Only a few on here have met me so this is a pretty perfect place to admit it and not effect anyone I know. 

Got tears in my eyes as I type this. lol

Struggling.

one thing this thread has taught me is that I am not alone. It provides a bizarre kind a solace to me. I perked up the other night after filling in a load of forms. It was weird.

Yeah man. I've been reading the thread but not posted because I was wanting to keep feeding off it. But then the last post was on Tuesday at 3pm and I didn't want it to get lost. 

Would like to see people keep posting. 

Cheers.

I hit a really low point on Monday when a close mate said something quite innocently to me, but I went hyper-sensitive and sent him a whatsapp message that took about 20 minutes to write, and I was a mess writing it too, I properly unloaded on him, and I'd say he didn't deserve it, as his intentions were good in the message he's sent me. But the low point kicked in when I then felt bad for burdening him with feelings, but in the message, I'd said he was my closest friend and if I couldn't discuss things with him, then there's something wrong.

Odd that I chose this forum to post the questions, I didn't even realise I was doing it! But it has been strangely therapeutic, and although it won't answer the questions I have (about my own mind), knowing I'm not a unique sufferer of feeling low.

I lay in bed wondering if this is the lowest I've ever felt, and if there is room to sink lower, and also, how long do you keep going, waiting for things to turn good, before you give up trying?

I had some knockbacks recently, and have picked myself up and dusted myself down, and from the outside, people think I've done amazing to be how I am right now, but inside, I still feel bitter, lonely and isolated.

Most of my family had it. I was in the boat of people just wanting attention by saying oh I got depression. They take tablets how do tablets help I don't know.

 

I then thought I got it my self broke down on my mum (Awww) who had suffered with it and said I had it. At that point I had a lot of respect for people who do have it / had it as it's not easy. I still don't think it was proper depression more of a really bad time. Luckily I'm quite strong minded and know that most of it's in my head and eventually stopped feeling so down etc.

Morning Everyone

I'm probably a good bit older than most of you who have contributed to this thread. All will have different reasons for feeling low. The one constant thing I've learned from seeing people affected by this is that they are not the best judges of their condition.

Several people I know have recovered well and fairly quickly through seeking professional help. I urge any of you who are feeling unwell to do the same.

I read a story about a guy whose mate as he put "stood toe to toe with cancer" for years .His mate came out with a line which resonated with me ,he said living ain't for pussies there are hard knocks on the way .Brave man

I think everyone questions themselves sometime in their lives and everyone needs to plug into the good guy's and girls and don't waste time on the rest .

Couple of things in this thread ,things ALWAYS seem worse when your are in bed in the middle of the night .They don't look half as bad the next day.

For anyone who gets panic attacks ,cup your hands over your mouth and nose and breathe ,it does slow the heart rate down.

Hope this helps, maybe a good therapeutic DCFC fans piss up would be good.

After reading through this thread I realise how lucky I am not to have suffered what is obviously a very real and distressing condition.

But I also think it's brilliant how people are willing to help others by posting about their own experiences of what must have been some of the most difficult parts of their lives.

Good on you and I honestly hope that this thread helps the people that need it.

Agree. We had one before  I think , but it fizzled out. 

A question for anyone. Everyone advises talking, and that makes sense. What about when there is no one to talk to? Maybe that sounds odd. Is the only answer, professional help?
