    This is so well written and relateajle and through reading this I know myself and my symptoms better and I know that they can be caused by nothing else other than our old friend ‘Depression’

    I am still struggling to get back to where I was. Te glass being half full and half empty says pretty much the same thing. You were okay Forbes a while and things were better and at some point you will Be again. That in itself is worth holding on for. When you’re okay make sure you enjoy cause you should be in preparation for the time that will cone when you are not.

    Hang in there. Right now I Ann juggling HIV, a bad break up, my second bout of cancer (Leukoplkia, if won’t kill me but you know it’s gonna make the next six months a living hell). Depression is oddly the heaviest and hardest thing to manage as there is often little practical steps and measures you can take and it’s robs you of the faith you NEED to survive. I work on my faith. If that is not faith in a god and it doesn’t have to be work in your faith in humanity. I know it’s sometimes hard to find but you have to look to find it.

    All the best to everyone!
