I feel ur pain when I 1st became ill depression was unknown to me and when it hit me I didnt know what it was or how to deal with it. I've had 2 rounds of counselling cbt mindfulness course and nothing has helped because my illness is ongoing and my life has basically stopped. Every day i wake up most days i dont want to but i try to make it through that in the end things will improve. Noone around me understands, the constant mood swings, the lack of self interest the lack of actual medical support sometimes it feels like your going round the bend. But talk, talk, talk someone will always be there to listen noone can fix us that's down to us but a listening ear goes along way. Your stronger than you think. Just asking for help takes massive courage. Please care for yourself. Xxx
I'm sorry to hear that if you're feeling so low cantact your local crisis team x
My son is going through the same so I do have some understanding of how hard it is to get the right help. We all need someone to listen. Can't be easy moving to a new area. x

Hi @t0nkys. I'm really sorry to hear you were struggling last night, but I'm glad you reached out here and both Nikkif and Firefly123 were here to talk with you. Did you find any way of distracting yourself in the end? In one of your other posts, you mentioned playing Her Story. I've heard a lot of good things about it. Have you made much progress? The heat these last few nights (and not being able to sleep) has definitely not been helping my mental health. Are you feeling any better at all this morning? I'm not sure on how much local support you have, but if you want to give MIND a call, they could direct you to some support groups close by who might be able to help.If you're still having a bad time and you really need to talk to someone, you can always give Samaritans a call (116 123) or email them ([email protected]) But if you think it might be more serious and you might be in danger, please don't hesitate to call 999 or go to your local hospital.
Good morning @t0nkys, I'm sorry to hear you have had such a bad night. How are you feeling this morning? I've never heard of that game, what is it like?
