Beyond Saving?

Posted 28th May 2018 at 22:33 by indigo777

Being with someone you like helps a lot, so does support. I think its a thing that people with family and friends have no real idea of, being totally alone for weeks on end. At least I have one friend for which I am thankful for but still am alone for most of the time. Trying to make friends online has been an even bigger disaster and almost always ends in failure making me feel disliked and CONFIRMING ALL NEGATIVE THOUGHTS. They then blame you for not going out to get friends or relationships as...

Small Talk

Posted 25th April 2018 at 19:20 by indigo777

Sometimes even when people occasionally spoke to me first I answered them and they looked like I had said something insulting and then moved on. This happened many times but one that springs to mind was when I went to see the queen visit a few years ago. I was taking pictures when an attractive woman said something quite...

Advice to your younger self

Posted 20th October 2017 at 23:04 by indigo777

I try not to go for the more pessimistic one of killing myself to stop future pain. Of course this is still dependant of what happens but at the moment to say my future looks bleak is a huge understatement and the last 30 years have been pretty shit as well. This is not depression talking whatever people may say. Lots of life is shit and does get worse. There...

Symptoms of Depression

Posted 6th August 2017 at 22:58 by indigo777

1. Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions

What? Yes, Where am I? Up shit creek most of the time. My memory is not so good any more. I forget things or care.

2. Fatigue and decreased energy

Yes, I feel exhausted now and dont go out much. I have become much more avoidant and often dont speak to other people for weeks.

3. Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness

Of course I am guilty,...
