    Sorry to hear you've had a tough week, however look at the positives, you've managed to avoid doing anything to yourself and that is awesome.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    Ill try and keep this short ..

    I have really high anxiety and suffer from depression im 24 now but I was diagnosed at like 19 right out of high school I usually stay to myself i have very few friends and the ones I have are really important to me. Im 24 still terrible with girls im not a terrible looking guy or anything im just weird I suppose. Wrestling has been something Ive always had in my life and something that always kept me sane I suppose in my mind of craziness .. I take prozac 40 mm. which helps and a mood stabilizer called sequel. Idk if thats how its spelled I only attempted suicide once. Im glad i didnt do it my life looks so much better than a year ago and my advice to anyone with metal health issues is dont be ashamed . I go to therapy 1 every 2 weeks and thats helped me out alot. Its okay to ask for help no matter what your going through. Trust me there is someone whose going through the same thing and is will to listen.

    Shit message me if you have no one else Im a very open person and always here if someone needs it.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    Here for you as well, lad.

    My anxiety used to be the point where I spend 3 straight years barely leaving the house, and would come to blacking out in public and such. It's no way to live, and I'd say I struggled far more with that than I ever did with the eating disorders or self harm.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    Being afraid to leave the house is the most debilitating thing I have every experienced. I can remember it being hard to even go into my own garden let alone leaving the premises at times and it was horrid. Thankfully my support network got me out doing little bits at a time. With that kind of thing, it's best to take small steps and build from there.

    Likewise. It's a very challenging thing to overcome, and the longer you go stuck like that..it just becomes a million times harder.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    I take medication for depression, though sometimes I still have some bad days mentally. It gets to the point that I don't feel motivated to do much of anything, though if I have to work that day I'll still go because I don't want to call out and inconvience them even though I don't really want to be there, yet I put on a happy face for those around me at work since I work with the public in retail.

    My sister passed away in 2009, who I was really close to, and then about six months or so after that I lost my job of five and a half years. It was a rough time for me but I tried my best to stay strong through it all and I did it for awhile where I was okay, but eventually I just got worse and people around me started to worry and insisted on me seeing a doctor. I saw a doctor and they could tell right away that something was up, and I explained to them why I felt the way that I did. They prescribed me on Citalopram and it's been about 4 years of me being on it, and it does help me out a lot though like I mentioned I still do have some bad days but I get through them the best I can.

    I'm here if anyone needs to talk as well. I don't think I give the best advice but I'm always willing to listen.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    Making yourself go to work when in a low mood is a massive positive, even more so in the line of work you're in. I can kind of switch off from my emotions once in work as i'm in work mode. I work in an externally funded job so have targets to be hit so need to focus on all that otherwise i'll be out of a job when the review comes around, again it's that good old friend distraction haha.

    Sounds like you had an horrific time of it back in 09, glad you're getting there though.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    I'm really struggling at the minute. I was diagnosed with depression about ten years ago and I was medicated for a short time. Since then I've experienced bouts of deep saddness but nothing as crippling as how I felt throughout 2007. I realised about a month ago that I am back in that hole again and I'm becoming self-destructive at an alarming rate. What's making it worse is that my depression is now coupled with wave after wave of horrendous anxiety, which wasn't the case back in '07, or at least it wasn't as bad/noticeable. I might be in the worst place I have ever been in mentally right now.

    Crap situation you got there mate. At times like this it's choosing which one to concentrate on first, as it's hard to battle both at the same time. Anxiety can come and go so it's probably easier to concentrate on that one first. Depression is a harder one, but the techniques are similar, that's when you've found what works for you.

    I'm always here if you want to chat through anything, can do it here, or privately. Obviously I don't know everything, but I can offer suggestions etc. Keep safe.

    Feeling alone is the shits and I relate to that being a trigger for deeper problems. I live in a very busy house and rarely go a full day without speaking to someone, but there are different types of alone and it can often feel like I'm alone here sometimes because there's a difference between the interactions I have with my family and the interactions I can have with friends and anyone I might be romantically linked with at any time. I think part of my problem right now is that I settled into this holding pattern where I convinced myself I was okay because I'm surrounded by people that love me and didn't notice that it doesn't make a difference unless I'm looking after myself as well.

    I don't know your situation and I don't considered myself close to capable when it comes to helping you through it, but I will say this, saying things publicly helps and changing things up does too. Just getting a break from your usual routine, visiting a friend you haven't seen in a while, something easy that can take you out of the mindset that you're alone in this (because very rarely is that truly the case) it all helps.

    My major issue is that whenever I experience a setback that isn't expected I punish myself mentally as if I'm to blame for it, which can often lead to me actually being to blame for something because in some cases I'll push friends and family away as part of my self-punishment and that ends up hurting them, thus the cycle continues. Just realising, acknowledging and publicly stating that I am (once again) depressed, has helped. It's made me see that this is something I tackled and conquered previously (as much as you can conquer something like this) and that I need to do it again. Last time it was a look in my mum's eyes one evening when I hadn't got out of bed for several days that told me I was in trouble. This time it was spending a day destroying myself mentally because my bike had a flat tire, a major over-reaction to something I simply couldn't control and is quite easily fixed - I looked at myself and realised I've limited my communication with almost everyone I know in order to isolate myself and allow myself to wallow in my own self pity. I'm now actively attempting to change that cycle, which is made all the easier by the fact that I have a pre-arranged night out with friends tonight to see the new Guardians of the Galaxy film.

    I was a little taken aback to find the e-mail equivilent of a drunk dial in my inbox this morning as well. My ex and I haven't spoke (except once a few months back, via text, which was an argument) in well over a year and before that whenever we did speak it was to scream and shout and get angry at each other. It could just be because I've had this moment of clarity regarding my current mental state, but this felt very different, she was clearly not fishing for anything in particular and was seemingly just having a moment after a few drinks and wanted to say some very nice things to me. I doubt we'll ever be able to be friends but having the knowledge there in type that she doesn't hate me and she accepts responsibility for her part in how we ended (a long and drawn out process that lasted over a year itself) makes me feel better in myself, as if I had been letting those two thoughts weigh down on me without even realising they were there.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    Punishing yourself is one of the silliest things to do isn't it, but it's the hardest thing to avoid doing, as you know it's mental health, and you mainly believe it is your fault for being in lack of a better term, mentally weak.

    The realities of it is, this isn't the reality. It is a viscous circle, but one that is very hard to break. As for the speaking to the ex thing, I can't comment on that as everyone deals with these kinds of situations differently.

    Eh, not been a great month personally, but coping alright.

    Plus side, doing a taster course at college next month on Mental Health with a view to looking at training in the industry. Some new career aspirations will certainly help.

    Training in Mental Health would be awesome. I've done mental health first aid which itself is a good one to do when you start.

    it's a free 6 week taster course, so I won't gain any qualification from it. But it means I can make sure I like it before committing to it.

    Re: Mental Health Discussion

    So, in the process of trying out a handful of new medications for my issues.

    We'll see how this goes.

    Been a while, lads. Currently my biggest struggle? Still the crippling anxiety. I've got GAD and Agoraphobia, both of which suck balls. Also got some other issues, was looking through (Post hospital visit) my list of diagnosis..Pretty alarming. xD
