I’ve had a hard couple of weeks. My depression kicked in really hard after a six month period where I have done so well. It was surprising for me to crash so hard because my coping strategies are good and I tend to be aware of my triggers.
I feel that I am coming out the other side now. One friend in particular was very supportive and spent quite a few days and nights just being there. They weren’t trying to cure me, but instead they did better which is just to sit with me and listen when needed, and laugh with me when needed. That was the most healing thing that happened to me.
I also had great support from people on Twitter and also my followers on WordPress. Simply incredible actually. I have been really moved. Unbolt, RisingHawk and my close friends who live nearby have been amazing. Too many people to mention on my Twitter account @menhealuk.
Not much more to say except thanks to everyone.
