Welcome to the forums Peteswim! I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling with depression. It is something I struggle with too as well as many other folks here on the forum so you are definitely among friends here. Hope you will enjoy getting to know us and looking around. xo, j
I have been suffering with depression for about 25 years as as well. I have some good days and some bad days. I have learned to live with the bad days because I know that they will end and then I get some good days.
I am so sorry to hear you have the virus.
It’s frightening how this new wave of it is spreading, and yes,
it isn’t going to be easy for people with depression where self isolation is involved.
Are you used to being ‘out and about’ a lot, or work.?
In some ways I feel guilty, as having depression, and anxiety with agoraphobia,
I haven’t been as affected as many others when it comes to lockdown etc.
However, it does nothing to ease the symptoms of my other mental health problems.
Perhaps you could spend some time on the forum to stop you feeling alone.
I’m happy to ‘chat’ with you.
I hope your symptoms continue to be on the mild side.
