Re: Depression

I have been doing a lot of thinking. One of the things I have been thinking about is the cost involved in me moving out of the house. I dont think it is feasible. Just from a simple financial situation, it would ruin me. Plus I dont really want to move out. I am happy here. I am comfortable here. In...

Re: Depression

Frank, Steve and I have never actually met. We did walk past each other at (i think) the first or second SFX Weekender. Neither of us know what each other looked like.

Looking back I did see Steve but I didnt know it was him, and probably the same for him.

Re: Depression

I should add, That after speaking to Donna, she hopes its just temporary. She just needs to sort her head out. She cant do that with me here.

So I am going to be moving soon.

I hope only for a short while.

Re: Depression

Donna has asked me to move out. Looking to rent someplace nearby in the meantime. Got a house in mind, its close by and has two bedrooms so I can have Talyn staying over. Its not what I want but Donna wants some space. It probably means the end of us, but if thats what it is then I have to accept it...

Re: Depression

For what it's worth I do know what is normal for me. Its just trying to get back to that I am finding hard. At the moment I am going back to the doc on friday, and probably going to discuss going onto antidepressants. Its not something I really want to do. I would rather overcome this without them, ...

Re: Getting older

I'll be 42 in 12 days time. Even I get to call Kafka Kiddo. Its not meant to be insulting or anything, its just a term of endearment. Its a complement in many ways.

Getting older is just one of those things. But I think if you stay young at heart then you remain as young as you want to be.

Re: Depression

Thanks Lori. I am trying to. Some days its easier than others.

Think I may try and write another story. I found it quite a helpful experience. A few people have red it and been very positive about it. I may even have a small amount of talent. You never know.

Re: Depression

Being perfectly honest, even with myself, if I wasn't in the mental state I am in, her behaviour probably wouldnt bother me.

So youre right. I need to focus on myself. First and foremost, I need to get my own head sorted out.

Re: Depression

Having a really shitty day. I messed up badly. Again. Donna's mum asked me on Monday how I was doing and what was going on. And I told her. Believing that she would say nothing about it. I told her my fears, the whole situation at home and how much Donna's behaviour was messing me up. Told her that ...

Re: Depression

Having a fair good day today. Painting the bedroom windows sills and varnishing doors. Trying to chase away negative thoughts by keeping busy. Last night I started writing the story I have had in mind for a couple of years. Its about the ship building industry on the Clyde where I grew up. But set i...

Re: Depression

Diane as I live in the UK the insurance thing is not the problem. Its a lack of qualified staff able to do the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I personally have found it very helpfull. I am not as anxious and down as I was. The anger issues I have had in the past are now under control. I am looking for...

Re: Depression

I think the journal thing is a great idea. I am going to do that. At the moment things are not easy. I am trying to give Donna space, but end up following her about the house. I need to break that and give her the time she needs to think clearly. That wont be easy as I am off work now, for at least ...

Re: Depression

Thanks for the advice Mr Barber, I am taking it on board. The thing is that recently we stopped communicating. Partly my fault, partly Donna's. One of the reasons for that is that she doesnt talk about emotional stuff. She just doesnt like doing it or finds it hard to do. In some ways I can be simil...

Re: Depression

Had a long and frank discussion with Donna tonight. In many ways it has helped me a lot. She made me see a lot of things that I didnt see. I also told her some things that maybe upset her, but they were things that she was doing that were deeply upsetting and disturbing me. So it has really helped. ...

Re: Depression

I amtrying to give her space. The problem for me is that I am better at writing things than I am talking. Donna doesnt deal well with emotional things either, which kind of makes it tricky. I dont want to make her feel pressured. I will wait as long as it takes for her to decide what she wants. I re...
