Hi all

Post by MusicOnMyMind on Mon Mar 26, 2012 6:55 am

Thought seeing I've basically posted left right and centre Embarassed I should probably do an intro "hi" post.

It's really nice to see an NZ based forum that is focused on supporting folk going through hard times, without the superficial BS that often goes with such topics.

So... umm... about me:
I'm 31... I've been fighting this current episode of depression for about 18 months, having had one other episode earlier in my life. It's been a pretty vicious battle. I've had to change jobs, which meant I lost the support of my colleagues, and have really, really struggled with the change in role. Only a few people know I've been battling... my husband, mum, and two friends. Everyone else just thinks I'm being antisocial or something. I've lost friends, might still lose my marriage... and I'm really very tired of the whole thing.

I'm under a good doc now, one who treats me as an intellligent person and listens. I struggle with the meds though, I'm "hypersensitive" and experience a lot of adverse effects. Right now I'd be happy for a solid 8 hours of sleep! Sleep goes to hell in a handbasket for me when I go low... so most of my meds are trying to address that.

I'm a big fan of complementary treatments, but nothing seems to quite be hitting the spot for me.

Ummmm... so yeah, hi! Embarassed will shut up now.
