    I guess I am my Mental Health in a way.

    So like now I feel really good and happy, but is it just hypomania?! :dontknow:

    I feel like I'm so variable because of my MH that at any one time my MH influence is strong but it's not always necessarily bad?

    Idk if that even makes sense.

    Surprisingly okay. I get by, and I know now how to stop things from getting hopeless.

    Not the best. Been in and out of therapy for years and lost count of what I've been diagnosed with. I'm a lot more secure and happier and healthier than I've been for a while though.

    Depression is only starting to come in bouts. Before it was 24/7 depression.

    Haven't self harmed for nearly a year now

    Haven't had panic attacks for a few months

    Haven't had bulimia since Year 10.



    It isn't good atm because depression is the most paralysing one for me.

    well done for getting to those checkpoints.

    and I've been bulimia free for 2 years now :woo: I will NEVER go back there though. CBT really helped me with that.

    I know.

    But I hope the light at the end of the tunnel appears sooner for you than it has for me.

    I think I just learnt very well to deal with myself and the introspection, although paralysing at times, does help you to overcome it through rational reinforcement.

    I have quite a complex condition though and it's kind of like spinning plates with symptoms. The key thing for me is sustainable use of energy so that I don't use it all up excitedly and then burn out.

    Antidepressants very much help me, in a lot of ways.

    Yeah me too. I am so tired of getting bouts of depression. It drains me out so much.

    I was offered anti depressants but I turned them down because I don't want to rely on pills. I spend most of my time reading books.

    I understand you not wanting to rely on pills. By any chance did you get to read the blog post I did on anti-depressants?

    It is so draining though, and because it's only 'bouts' people don't tend to take it as seriously as if it is chronic and consistent.

    Same!

    I get bouts of depression too, it comes in chunks. Can last 3 days, to 2 weeks....after a longer period I feel extremely exhausted.

    Last week was great, this week has started out terrible. It's really tough to be honest.

    Since the start of Feb I've been crying almost daily, at least twice a day is standard.

    The result of heartbreak, family issues and poor mental health.

    Nope I didn't. Yeah if you have it in bouts, you're attention seeking apparently.
