Ever felt like you were in a tunnel with no lights, It seems like I have been travelling through this tunnel for ever occasionally seeing some dim light but the dim light comes less and less frequently.
My mood sank when I found I could not tolerate large groups of people, my main pleasures were work and church, " my dim lights," but now that is out of the question.
How can i find my way out of this tunnel, this predicament, I so want to live life again but some times I think is it worth it.

All the best Wollie

Hi Wollie, I'm so sorry to hear you're feeling this way. It's not going to last forever, but until you feel better you're going to have to go really easy on yourself. Sometimes you simply won't have the energy for the activities you usually enjoy and that's heartbreaking - depression gets rid of the ability to feel pleasure from most activities. This won't always be the case. This is easier said than done, but don't punish yourself for feeling this way as it's not your fault. When you do feel some energy to do the things you usually enjoy, embrace the opportunity - you'll thank yourself for it later.

All the best

Thank you BranFlakes
Thing is my daughter thinks I have damaged my brain through drinking a bottle of rum a day
So if my brain is damaged I can see no end to this horror.

All the best Wollie.

Are you getting any support in regards to your drinking?
We all deserve good mental health, and with the right help you will get there. Depression takes away hope and makes us believe all sorts of things, its good at that.
Things will get better, with the right help, and you are worth it, so put yourself first you deserve that

Hi Woolie.
Just dropping a line to see how you are.
It’s a long time since anyone was here.

I had a psych who was useless.
It seems to be quite a similar situation with
many of us.

I also self medicated with alcohol.
Even when taking antidepressants.

I am an alcoholic in recovery.
Last week it was 17 years since I had a drink

The “Light at the end of the tunnel “ of mental
health problems still creates it to be very dim.

Hope you are keeping well,
Pollypop x
