I'm feeling really flat today, and having urges this afternoon.
'My life' is going well, I've just had an offer accepted on a new house, sold my car, researching new cars ready for the weekend, pip assessment went well, my children are healthy and happy.
I have it all but yet I can't lift my self out of this depression, I feel like I can't cope with my life. I'm having urges to s/h badly, thoughts of not being here - no plan just thoughts and urges.
Got to see the c team tomorrow I'll lie my way through it, pretend I'm alright, what's the point hey?

Why don't you tell how you are really coping they don't judge they assume that because someone's life is okay they are coping well. It's more about how you cope in daily life

Yeah I might, I'm fed up of pretending, I'm too weak to put a happy face on for everyone anymore
