    I don't have any of those issues,  but we can all relate to life being a bit pants and needing someone who just understands.  It is nice to see people out there with happy sparkly, rewarding lives but ours just aren't and that kind of stinks doesn't it  :'(  I hope you find someone you can share with x

    @itsafeething thanks for the reply. I don't think I have that one as I tend to be depressed for most of the year x

    I have manic depression, I hate when the doctor and mental health worker come up with what they want, cause I always end up with new tablets, or changing meds, that seasonal one you can have on top, of other illnesses , 
    for example. Weather... if it’s a dull day. Your mood will be down depressed, you stay in bed. if it’s sunny you feel good with in yourself, you might go for a shower. And maybe leave the house. X

    I have dysthymia which is a continual low mood and when the clinical depression hits really badly its horrendous as they are two separate disorders, one on top of the other. I've read your other posts and was wondering if some of how you feel is about how you were treated in the past, I know some of mine is. I grew up with lots of abuse and I think it has made me hate myself in every way I can think of. No need to share anything you don't want to of course - its a bit too public on here, but maybe something to think about. 
    Don't get me started on mental health workers - I've had to dig through so much **** to get to the ones who are any good; Still, I've only been under their care for 10 years! x
