Hi Rotty12,

It's great that you stuck around even if only for your family's sake.

I hope you will find this forum helpful. I'm new here too and have suffered from the same type of thing on and off (well, it was only totally off once in the last 23 years!).

I don't have a whole heap of advice and I'm not doing well myself at the moment...but I wanted to let you know I know roughly how you feel and I want to help out if I can. Knowing if you've had any professional help yet is helpful in knowing what advice other members can offer.

:grouphug:

P.s. I only sought professional help in March this year.....so don't be put off by the lengthy time I've been unwell!

P.p.s Only just noticed this was posted in a local forum. Please ignore my response if you were asking for localized advice.

Hi Rotty - I've moved your post here to the introductions part of the forum where more people will see it. Have a good look round the forum - you can pick up all sorts of advice just by reading the threads. Post when and where you feel comfortable. And welcome.

Hi rotty &:welcome: i would like to think im in a good position to help as i too have had depression for over 10yrs and it affects me in so many BAD ways, aggression and mood swings being the worst and its only the last 6months or so that i have finally started to beat this dehabilitating ilness i too have kids (2) and that has been my only real exuse not ending my life to be honest i dont get those thoughts anymore i have finally found an antidepressant that is helping me but that is not the cure finding the root of the problems is the key i get bored/frustrated:stomp: very easily which makes me down so i found that a good hobby for me has really helped, what have you tried?? there are so many options maybe more than you realise, talk to you soon
