So I went to the docs today and I've found out why I've been so tired and emo all the time. Apparantly I am depressed, I've refused to go on medication cos I don't really want to start that. I do have to go for counselling though and I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that.....not.

Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know what's going on and why I may not seem as cheerful as normal.

They told me that when my mum had died, that I needed to go on medication. It is A solution, but not THE solution. A councilor could help, and ya know you don't have to tell them anything too personal. I went to councilling a few years ago, it did help, alot!

But ya know if you need to vent, let loose just scream and shout, I'm here. I'm not promising I'll have the answers, but if you need me I'm there, and if you want I'll pm you my mobile number, all ya gotta do is ask xx Take care honey xx

Thanks hon, it helps to know I have people I can talk to about it.

I'm not looking forward to talking about it all to a complete stranger, especially someone that probably hasn't been in the situation I'm in and will not understand.

I might take you up on the offer of your mobile number, I promise not to drunk call at three in the morning :D

~epic hugs~

It does help. I know that it isn't something to look forward to, I hated going for counselling when I had it too, but I really hope it helps you as much as it did me. I'm glad you said no to medication for now - doctors always seem way too eager to do that. :/

I will say the same - if you'd like my mobile number, let me know. I know I will want yours come March, for some reason or another. But I'm always around if you want to talk.

Also, take a look at some menus for me? Bear in mind that if something sounds nice except for one ingredient, I'm perfectly fine with asking the chef to cook it the way YOU want it.

There's THIS ONE (which I'm kind of rooting for, but if there's nothing there you'd like to eat then we won't go)



this one also!

I've only been to one of those before. (Of course...Hard Rock do cocktails too. MWAHAHA.)

ILU. ♥

OK so I have studied them thoroughly and after much deliberating I have decided that this one or ooh but not this one also.

Also I feel I must warn you, cos I'm not sure it's come up in conversation before, I don't drink, I'm more fun sober than drunk, sorry if it's a problem hon *hides*

I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety as a teenager and did go on medication for a time. As an adult, I decided to avoid perscription meds and found that taking natural Melatonin supliments help manage my moods.

Also, diet can help. Eat small meals throughout the day, lots of lean protien and good carbs. Avoid too much processed sugar, cuz that gives you a temporary sugar high and then you crash.

As I said, I've had years to find a routine that works for me and every persons biology is different. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. :)

Thanks for the advice, I didn't know diet affected it, that's probably why it's this bad. The stupid pills they had me on for my weight meant I could hardly eat anything and any meat other than chicken was a big nono.

It helps a lot knowing there are people out there who understand what I'm going through, so thank you.

Unfortunatly, diet and exercise play a big part in controlling depression, at least for me. Every morning,I get up early to get in an hour of Tae Bo (old school, I know, lol), because it releases endorphins that give a great boost to the start of the day. If I don't, I feel sluggish and just...weighed down all day.

Diet pills? My mom was a nurse and was reluctant to let me try any of that, which I'm grateful for now. Once I wrangled the depression, I lost a lot of the weight (and I was extremely overweight, like 300 lbs. Down to 175 now!)

Chicken only, huh? How about turkey...or Eggs! Both are good sources of protien!

Well done on the weight hon, I know how hard it is to lose it.

Eggs were a nono as well, the pills were all about fat content and eggs have got more fat in them than I was allowed. I've stopped taking them now, cos I had a feeling they weren't helping.

Okay, I can't say that I've dealt with depression. Only the one that only hits you for a few hours or a day. But I thing talking might help. Of course it's hard to open up to a complete stranger, but it might also be the point in it. This stranger will have a complete outside view and might give you a new perspective to look on things. They may not be in the same situation as you are, but they're trained professionals to help you. I only had psychology a year in school, but what they told us is that talking about things is a first step to feeling better.

And you know that if you're sick of your shrink we'll be hear to listen to you rant and scream. You can always email me, hon. I'm here and you know where to find me. Love you. *hugs*

Thanks hon, I might just take you up on that offer, you'll be sick of me you'll see :)

I could never be sick of you.

I just posted a Heads up to my journal that after this weekend I won't be able to update both fics every weekend. Just so you know, hon. :))

Sorry you've had a tough week hon, anything I can do to help?

Nah, I don't think so. I just need a little time to myself. Just lounging ont he couch, doing nothing except watching SPN and reading fics. :) I have a week off in two weeks, I'm sure I'll feel better after that.

I have to go to our other office again the next week. So I'm guessing it'll be pretty stressy, until I get off work.
