I must say i have a zest for life even though i tried to end it once, i cling on to the thought others need me, like me, but that isn't the problem the problem is the voices, they constantly run me down and i get depressed, it only takes one or two things to happen to make me feel suicidal again, usually i can pick myself up but other times it is a real struggle.
so how do you cope?
All the best Woolie.

Hi Wollie. When I start hearing my voices I get really scared too. But like you said we have to take care of our self's. My fifteen year old son keeps me going. He is starting to notice my mental illness now. As far as getting suicidal it has been over a year. I am in therapy which has made me take care of my hygiene and eat. Those ar both personal things that I feel in control of so when I am having a hard time I stop showering brushing my teeth and I do not eat. This still happens some days.

I am glad you are feeling good right now. No Fears and No Worries lots of hugs and love Jules

Yep, feeling good at the moment, but I am watching out for those first signs, lack of energy,sleeplessnes, couldn't give a toss about any thing, they all hide around the corner,
I certainly don't want to experiance another bout that landed me in hospital again.

Yes I do like the outdoors, i went for a walk up the hills only last week with my support lady
It is a good way to make one happy, but i am still affraid of depression sneaking back again
If only the voices would give me a rest.

That sounds promising. :)

It is just nice to wander around. Pop into charity shops, grab a coffee, go to the library :)

Going to the hospital is sometimes necessary-I know those hidden things can come up and destroy us as people. So just know that if you get down do not stay there Get help. I have been hospitalized before and I came out in a much better state of mind. I have not been through a bout for a year now. I was so nuts last time things came up in my life. I did not want to go on. I would just sit there. That is when we need help the most. I am doing okay now too. But I know what you mean about around the corner. Keep posting and stay safe No Fears and No Worries Lots of hugs and love Jules
