Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

I'm going to post here, even though I'll be ashamed tomorrow...it's tough drawing breath, I self medicate too much and the Black Dog stalks me....yeah, I know I should get a grip.
No need to feel ashamed mate, there are loads of good lads on here who will never judge, and who will listen, at the end of the day the first hurdle is being able to talk openly about issues too people who care, and there are plenty of them on this thread.

I've been saying it for a long time, social media is a disaster for mental health, now it appears that young people presenting with mental illness will be asked about their social media use. I deleted my FB and Twitter accounts a year and a half ago and still feel great about it, I haven't had anxiety or even felt low since, one of the best decisions I ever made. I'm so happy without that distraction. https://www.google.ie/amp/s/amp.the...sts-young-patients-social-media-mental-health
Same here mate. I'm on Twitter as an alias so I've got nothing personal to live up to and can just use it to get the latest news. It's strange with Facebook how you can check it so often and then when you're off it, not miss it at all.

Missed 2 doses of my citalopram due to not being able to get to the pharmacy to collect my prescription. I've picked them up now but I feel dreadful. Hoping it will only take a day or two for me to level out again.

Preach. Twitter is a hellhole. I completely swerved it when I was at my parents' last week and I didn't miss it. It just makes me angry and depressed. The dregs of humanity are on there.

Also, Brexit is making me wish I'd kept the Oxycontin tablets I picked up off the street, because at least I'd be able to eat the whole lot and then go to sleep and never wake up.

It honestly feels that there's no way out and loads of Brexiters think this fact is hilarious.

Relax, no one knows how it’ll affect us yet, no point flapping before it happens.

If it even happens.

Brexit is a mess, but ending a life is worse than anything by far. Whatever happens brexit won't be as bad as the clanging bells make out. Europe will still exist 22 miles away and they will want to trade because they're simple humans and so they want our money. The sun will still rise each day and that day is there to make of it what you will. There is no magic formula to life, no ideal way to spend it, so spend it in a way that makes you want to live it.

Whatever you do protect your life .

It will happen and it looks like it's going to be a No Deal.

What is legit making me suicidal is how many Brexiters think chronically ill/disabled people going without meds is funny. I mean, I know a lot of people think we're worthless pieces of meat but it's not much fun having it spelled out for me, you know? I didn't choose to be in pain all the time or depressed. I don't understand why it's such a big joke.

People ridicule what they don't or can't understand, always have done, always will do. It's human nature, don't take it personally. Most of them, if they knew the consequences and effects of the lack of medication would stop and feel foolish.

If you're worried sbout a shortage, speak to your doc about it and see if you can get extra prescriptions before brexit. It will only be a short hiatus due to logistics. Businesses are not politicians, they will still be desperate to sell to any country that waves cash.

Why would you be going without meds? The world isn’t cutting us adrift.

I've just got this month's script, so am fine for now. I've also started stockpiling food.

I tend to take things extremely personally, which is why I try to avoid kopites on social media.
Taking stuff personally is a quick source of stress. Far better to allow stuff to flow around you.

Please don't take our discussion over Jordan Pickford personally - I was just airing thoughts for discussion, as I am prone to. There was absolutely no intention to score points.

Delays and shortages because my meds are manufactured in Germany. And I hate uncertainty and I hate feeling like I'm falling with no end in sight. That is how Brexit feels to me right now. I'm also scared of losing my job and possibly having to go back into sex work to support myself. I used to be a cam girl. I made pornographic clips for a fetish site. It wasn't that fun, tbh.

Btw I'm not arsed what other people think of Pickford, I like him, Dave and others hate him. I'm not going to stop liking him just because of GOT. I mean, I still love Jags.
