It can be difficult, a lot of people have a positive outlook on life, but nasty things happen, so it can knock you back like it did me, but then again it can all be about looking at what you have in the here and now - mindfulness -, why not make yourself a nice meal, I find that helps.

I have been sick several times. It’s pure depression and anxiety.

I’m trying the mindfulness thing but I keep reverting back to my problems. For example my partner who left yesterday.

I just don’t know if I’ll get through it.

with anxiety I found that the things I was worrying about happening just kept on happening - & it was making me ill & putting me off my food - I told my family in 2006 that I didn't want to live the next 5 years, it wasn't until 2007 that I finally took control off things, I did find that being assertive was really helpful, I did have real problems, most people were OK I found to get everything sorted.

I’m sorry to hear what you been through. You don’t deserve it like myself. You are very brave and strong.

What I did discover in 2006 was an inner strength that I never even knew I had to overcome the worst part of my life, something I'd never had to use before, I think it's innate in all of us - & it helped me immensely.
