    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    Ok, so you’re not dependent on alcohol, you think, but you use it as a crutch to cope with boredom? Alcohol is a depressant. I’m afraid there’s no escaping that brutal reality. It’s countering the effects of your antidepressants so you’ll never feel the full benefit of the medication...

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    Oh mate, I hope your choice of antidepressants doesn’t boil down to which one mixes best with the ale!!! You’ve come off the fluoxetine very sensibly though and I hope you’re feeling better back on the citalopram. There’s a range of other antidepressants you could be prescribed but you don’t...

    Match Thread Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton, Preview, Match Report and MotM Poll

    Missed the game so can comment only on the result. Nil-nil away to a seasoned premier league side, first day of the season, new players out or only just getting used to our system, early injury to key player disrupting our flow, and a man sent off. That’s a good result in the circumstances...

    This is a table suggesting better terms to use than agony-aunt style non-validated trite. It’s aimed at improving communication in the workplace but clearly so much of it is relevant to speaking with people fighting mental health illness.

    Feel for you, mate. Dreadful situation. Can’t add anything to the good advice you’ve already been given. Maybe worthwhile your union rep raising the issue of you being owed an enhanced duty of care under the Equality Act? Not suggesting your being on antidepressants has contributed to your...

    No mate, nothing is infallible! The questionnaire isn’t a perfect diagnostic tool. It’s primary functions are to screen for possible depression and to monitor if symptoms improve or decline during time by observing increase or decrease in score. Depression suspected only if you answer more than...

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    Which only highlights the hazards of trying to self diagnose using tools that should be administered by trained professionals! I suppose the link doesn’t explain that some questions are weighted more than others and that a holistic determination around prevailing “functionality” should be used...

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    At what point does just being sad become depression? The single most sensitive screen is if, for at least 2 weeks, you’ve not been able to derive enjoyment from anything. Nothing detracts you from your misery even those things that would normally raise your spirits. Add to this early morning...
