Please don't feed those down feelings....they grow! I think your life is busier and more productive than you think! Not to downplay your feelings at all, but you are achieving much, helping friends, socialising, auditioning for a play, looking at a new unit, volunteering. All this in a few short weeks since you were in hospital.

Be gentle on yourself.
Said beautifully. And I agree 100%.

As someone else who has dealt with major depression for many years, I am in awe of you Leshar. You are doing so well!! And I really believe Crois is right about not giving in to those feelings. I know I can 'feed' my depression. Or I can nurture myself.

And yes Crois, who'd a thought that looking after ourselves so we can do better tomorrow would work instead of drinking? Probably lots of people, but I'm not one of them. Well, I am now.

Love and good morning to all of you. ♥

Just aimless and directionless.
Croissant, I will try that duo lingo site, thanks. Sorry you had a difficult time at work.

Sorry, the beer thing was a joke.

It really used to depress me when other people had things going on and i wasn't invited. I not only took it really personally but it started me off on a spiral of self loathing, shame, and resentment.

Over time, I learned to keep a healthy perspective - I'm fun, I'm good company, and I'm interesting.

It may be it simply didn't occur to them to ask you, or they thought you might decline. Are they younger folks?

Maybe you can be the first to suggest going out together enmasse next time?

and I really agree with Crois - do all those little things like showering, cleaning and self care...don't let yourself slip down the rabbit hole...think about the good things you have...you're OK, and everything else is OK too

Wow Leshar i second that feeling. I always get up and go. I dont give myself a choice. But days go much better being in a good mood. If i am not in the mood sadly i fake it until i make it. Just part of life i guess.

Haha...nighty night, Let.

It's nearly 10.30pm here. Off to bed....time to buy aircon this weekend, methinks! It's steamy here.

Mood terrible, only made myself get out of bed to feed Tiki.
I'm bloody powerless over this depression, I can't fight it, I don't know why it's shifted but it's horrible.

Hugs and love to you, dearest Leshar. I hope that the depression lifts soon, sweetheart.

Sorry Leshar. I feel for you. They make it sound easy to overcome. But when storm rolls in there is no escape similar to mother nature sometimes.

You seemed to be doing really great to me until you didn't get invited out Leshar. Have you been thinking about that?

I used to get obsessional and then fall into a spiral of negative thoughts.

You are good kind and a remarkable person. You deserve care and love. I think that has to start with ourselves though.

Please try and get up, shower, clean the house etc...even if it's only a little bit at a time.

Can you think of something nice to do for yourself on the weekend?

Leshar darling one

Listen to everyone here and how much they all love you. Heed this advice as we don't say things we don't mean. It is what it is here in our Julyers. I love you dearly.

Well people . What a frantic stressful couple of days here. A truly aweful bushfire raging through my state of ADELAIDE, South Australia. 3 people killed , but probably way more by now. Horses. Livestock , houses, all gone!

Holly was having her formal with her boyfriend Andrew in Kapunda last night , but it was obviously cancelled. Thank god she didn't sleep there the night before like she wanted to. They had to evacuate.

This is just horrendous. I'm worried about people I can't contact as lines and phone towers are down :-(
