Hi Wollie

I've had counselling in the past and CBT which helped, starting a depression group in June for 10 weeks, on anti- depressants which help. I find it hard to talk about things, which doesn't help. Do you do any therapies that help?

Cheers
Nance

I am going to therapy 5 days a week, they do relaxation, mindfulness etc, so far i have not had any benefit from it, i have been going 3 weeks now.
What meds are you on I'm on fluloxitine and rispirdol which also does not help, but I am also schizophrenic. please forgive spelling.

All the best Woolie.

Hi woolie

Yeah I take veneflaxine, trimprimate, folic acid and vitamin D. Think the meds help. Hope your sessions help, guess they take time to work.

Cheers
Nance

Nance If you want to talk any time I would be more than willing, I hope your good days out number your low days.

All the best Woolie.
