Talking about depression



It is another end of another week and I don't know about you but having no school run to do in the mornings as made me lose track of the days.

My thoughts and advice for this week is not to allow things to get to you. It is a working progress. I have been through a bit of a drama and I mentioned in my blogpost Self Confidence- Feel like the ugly duckling, about being back on medication and I am now on anti-depressants.

If you do go down the route of taking medication for depression always ask what the side effects are as there are many. With the one I am on your mouth can get very dry so it is important you drink plenty of water.

It is Quetrapin and I had to take one and then increase to 2 tablets at night before I go to bed.

If you are like me have spouts of depression then you do need to seek support and create which I wrote about in a previous blog a good foundation for yourself, so you can speak to them whenever you feel low.

Try not to isolate yourself because this can lead to further depression, causing self sabotage, develop bad habits to avoid the feelings of depression and before you know it, you are back contemplating whether to take that overdose or not.

Please do not go down the spiral and call for help. I have written two other blogs relating feeling suicidal:

I am going through a marriage break up and it is tough, as so much as drastically changed now and it can be niggling parasite, but yet at the same time I am kind of relieved as it hadn't been working for a while, so I am ready to make that change in my life, and I have met someone new and so I feel it is time to move on.

Many thanks for reading,
