Coping with Depression

Posted 17th June 2016 at 13:06 by indigo777

I have found it very frustrating to look up ways of coping for depression. Just as for anxiety much of it seems totally irrelevant or to be written by somebody who has never had it.



1. For depression they keep telling you to meet people talk to people and be with people. Ooops I am a weird loner and know virtually no one due to lifelong social anxiety which is the main cause of all my depression in the first place. And of course if you are depressing then no strangers...

Must Try Harder

Posted 2nd May 2016 at 20:08 by indigo777

I mentioned before I joined elefriends a while ago. Its a site for people with mental health problems designed a bit like Facebook I suppose where people can leave messages and others reply to them. However like most sites I just read all these people speaking to each other and feel like I am on a different planet. It doesn't get better or easier like the message says, it never does. I try to make some replies and comments to others but they are ignored. When I have made some myself they did get...

The Age of Loneliness

Posted 12th February 2016 at 17:23 by indigo777

I watched The Age of Loneliness tonight which had been on the BBC a couple of weeks ago. It was very sad and had me in tears a couple of times. I hate to see that kind of desperation and sadness.

Christmas time, coffee cake and wine.

I ate the other and the rest of the cake which is a concern as there are several packets of butter and vast quantities of sugar inside. But it's Christmas and I'm a greedy ******,so there!

Winter

Posted 12th December 2015 at 13:41 by Fungus



It felt so good to go out for a winter walk in the sun for a change. Things like this can improve my mood considerably but they are only of limited use and dont last for long and as I have said before walking in the city is no more beneficial than shopping at Tesco which actually increases my anxiety. I try to go out for a longer walk about once a week but the weather has been considerably shit this autumn....
