Depressed, But Hoping to Break Out! 2 Replies

This is my first post on this site, so please forgive me if it is long and / or tedious, or if it isn't submitted in quite the right category. It's taken some time to work up courage to actually post this, as I'm somewhat of a shy and reticent person by nature and not given to talking about personal, especially emotional, problems with anyone. I've spent a while on this site much as I have done with several others of a similar vein – that is to say, reading what others have written but not…Continue

Tips from a long-term sufferer

My apologies for writing so much, it is particularly presumptuous as I have only just signed up to this board. I'm equally sorry if my tips aren't very helpful or pertinent to any body reading them; from talking to fellow-sufferers I've found that depression is a very individual and complex illness, so a "one size fits all" approach to it doesn't tend to work.Even for myself, specifically, some tips are only useful at certain stages in my particular form of depression. Broadly speaking there…Continue
