    not to bad. felt a bit more positive the last week or so. just seem to be going through me quiet phase for want of a better term. It`s basically when i`m feeling a bit better but not really got a lot to say to anyone. From experience though it usually means i`m coming up from a dip if you get what i mean

    I am fella. Although for me, there was a good combination of getting the timing of meds and some counselling.

    It's amazing how this sort of stuff creeps up on you.

    I've had a low couple of weeks recently, fortunately me boss is ok with me working at home, and my team know how to get hold. I've been honest with the guys that work for me so they know when I'm having a dive.

    Been on them for a couple of years. They work for me just by levelling me out.

    Yes , certainly sets my mood back for a while - it’s important for me to get lots of Vit D in supplement form too to deal with the darker months

    I know depression is a chemical imbalance, but environmental factors don’t help.

    Started work fainally yesterday, let go this morning for somerging in my past showing on the form they finally got round to checking.

    Almost in bloody tears.

    Back to the library looking for another job not to get.

    I don't know what's got into me lately but nothing is fun anymore and I have an awful creeping dread.

    @Bishop Mackem I got made redundant in October last year, spunked the pay off I got away on living expenses and didn't work again for 5 months.

    Finally got a job at one of the places I'd looked at previously but they weren't hiring, made plenty of friends and loved the job. They peddled me on the final day of my probation because the company lost a major client and had to let people go. They made two people redundant and got rid of me.

    It ended up being a blessing in disguise and things eventually worked out for the better, and I'm in a better place now than I was this time last year even though I had no intentions of leaving my old, old job.

    Chin up, you don't know what's round the corner.

    How long have you been on it for? I’ve been taking it since March, started off on 50mg and was put upto 100mg a couple month after. First couple weeks were pretty bad but I’m a totally different person now from what I was back then. Feeling confident and positive. I’m going to the gym most days which also helps. I’d happily stop on these tablets to stay the person that I am now.

    Cheers for the reply marra only 3weeks been getting headaches sickness and tremors as well as pins n needles in head I'm guessing the tablets are trial and error. I get physio for back n shoulders but get chest and stomach pains think they want to see if mental side is making some issues worse I just feel awful mood wise and a bit useless.

    Agree with last part.

    Years back folk would have played the hard lad and suffered massively.

    Chin up lads/lasses, however hard that is.

    What do you mean years back? for all the "time to talk" and organisations like the one I work for having "mental health Champions/first aiders" it still very much is man up and crack on with it
