    Mixed bag

    Certain things won't change, however some things can.

    Going the doctors tomorrow to see if prozac is the answer over my current combination of meds.

    Starting a new job in a few weeks, so thats gets me away from the headfuck that is caring for dying people with the same condition as my daughter.

    I go from feeling great to feeling shite in a moment. More often than not its numbness though.

    The numbness is what kills. The clouded visage of what you're feeling. How can you verbalise how you're feeling when there aren't words?

    I'm not suicidal for the minute though, so that's a plus

    I don't know you or your circumstances particularly buy my mother-in-law works in palliative care as a nurse and I always say, and think, it's the most admirable and under appreciated job anyone could ever do.

    Just wanted to say that.

    sorry to hear that @Fabio - if there's anything I can say here to make you smile, or feel better, let me know.
    Otherwise, all I can say is we're (the site) with you and all the others going through these difficult times.

    I’ve just read most of this thread and quite a few of us have been thru / are suffering with depression.  I was signed off work at the start of May after my wife dragged me kicking and screaming (and crying) to the doctors.

    I’m not too bad at the moment but I’ve got my first CBT session in a few weeks (with Talk Liverpool).  Has anyone been to one of these?  What can I expect ?

    I've done CBT mate.

    It's tailored to some degree for everyone, I ended up using lists to plan my days & give them some structure, & note when I did tasks.

    Seems basic as fuck, but when I had little to no motivation I found it actually worked, I still use it now on occasion. It's not a cure all by any means, & required some willpower, but worked well.

    It'll probably be different for you, as I said, they tailor it, but what it isn't is anything like what you've seen on us shows where you pour your heart out to a counsellor or psychariast.

    Needless to say, if you need to talk or just go for a pint & not talk about anything important, or whatever, you've got my number.

    CBT was genuinely amazing for me. Just the ability to get all the shite out my head, and have someone repeat what I'd just said in a much clearer way, was enough to get me on the path to feeling good again
