Hi,

I have never used a forum before but feel the need for a little support from people who know what I'm going through.

Been suffering since my teens, now at the age of 26 I have finally started CBT after a break down last year. Therapy is working really well but I'm exhausted, it's the hardest thing I have ever done. This evening I just had to give in to the black dog again because I couldn't keep it up anymore. I know tomorrow I will pull it all together again but I just needed a moment of weakness and have no-one to turn too.

Can anyone identify with this?

Hi Jlol - I don't think it's a weakness to recognize that sometimes you have to feel what you are fighting, I think that's a strength! Keep coming back and welcome.

Hi and :welcome: Jlol.

I would guess many of us could identify with what you describe - I certainly can. That bloody dog is a persistent and cunning beast. The crucial thing, in my view, is not to beat yourself up and start feeling guilty when it sneaks up on you - weakness is not a bad thing and no-one can be strong all the time. Give yourself a break and go easy on yourself.

:) as so often I know my advice is easier to give than to follow - I have certainly failed to do so often enough!

Coming here and talking it through is a good thing to do as well.

Nick.

Thank you so much to everyone who has welcomed me to this forum. I wish I had known about this place years ago. I feel so much more positive today just for knowing I'm not alone.
