Just to say hello, I've joined this site because I have had depression since childhood, and a few years ago I had an acute episode have been fine but now its starting again so I've decided to do a little self therapy to see if there are others who experienced depression as a child and who now still have episodes in adult life? What were your experiences, have you linked any of your behaviours to how your were socialised as a child?

My father I remember drank lots of whisky and he was quite volatile towards me, often telling me I was useless. I remember a great sense of anxiety whenever he was around, and being paranoid after his verbal outbursts or arguements with my mum. I didn't learn to cope, I learned anxiety and paranoia instead. I'm convinced this has always been one of the factors at the root of my depression and possibly other peoples too...if you have had a similar experience please get in touch

Hi

A common staitment I have hear and applyies to me is ,... " I did not learn to live , I learnt to survive "... I think it is just another way of putting what you said.. neglect and abuse as a child is also common thread for a lot of people.., as for advice, get as much good help as you can as early as possible.. and try and learn the things you did not...

Take care ... boB.. (y)
