Daren’t get out of bed

I get like that most days but an hour in bed makes me feel a bit better and i get up. I have to make sure my flat is unstimulating, a bit like a hospital. It must be classic depression, to hide away and feel the world is too noisy, fast and overwhelming. Take it easy and go gentle on yourself. It is important to get sunlight every morning to feel better so you must do that somehow.

I think 25% of my calls did more harm than good. There were a handful of Samaritans who did say something interesting that has helped me and stayed with me. I think eventually we all realise that there isn't anyone who knows us and how we feel, as well as we do. We know what we need, and we need time to find that out.

Do try them again, by email also, and there are other similar charities you can email. I think i have learnt far more on forums than i have anywhere else in my life.

Thanks for your replies Tawny....yes they can be a bit hit and miss. I could tell she hadn’t really “been” there if you know what I mean and she couldn’t wait to get onto the next caller I feel. It may have just been me though.

It’s so difficult isn’t it when you have strong feelings and need some kind of outlet for them.

I’m just not looking forward to Christmas, so many things to sort out, presents to buy, house to clean. Beam me up Scottie!
