It's weird, isn't it. Almost like we have to accept or allow ourselves certain liberties so that we can cope with them without feeling bad.

I was the same a while back. Along with my depressive episodes came terrible guilt for sleeping too much. It wasn't until my psychiatrist explained that, after a high, I needed the extra sleep for my body and mind to recuperate, that I felt better about it.

It's a strange world.

I hope you're okay.

Yes am ok,just not thinking right.I keep thinking i can go and live outside and catch and hunt my own food,but i am not fit enough.Always thinking of ways to escape like living in a campervan on my own. My family is a burden to me,but am just not well enough to escape and time is flying by.I think it's to late in life to do anything about it.

Sorry to hear you're feeling like this, Clive. It's pants, for sure.

Hopefully there will come a time when you are feeling well enough to escape. It's never too late.

Not sure about the becoming a vagrant part (mainly because I wouldn't last 10 minutes!) but I think, when we feel the need to get away, anything seems better than the situation we're in.

I hope you're feeling better soon :hug1:
