Hello, guys! I don't know if you've noticed that I haven't been around as much - things have been pretty hectic and my whole world has crashed down around my ears several times over the past fortnight. This Thursday I was diagnosed with depression.

What the hell? What happened Claire? I did notice that you haven't been online for some time.

Explain! I am worried now!!

Moomoo, I am all up for a basketball game. When you come to Cirencester let me know and we'll have game or two .

How is everyone doing?

Regards

I kind of had something of a crash and with my parents' aid realised how bad I was feeling and had been for some time. It's been a tough two weeks and I've had a huge housing fiasco to deal with - I ended up having Mum come stay with me for a few days.

After a not very sympathetic nurse on Tuesday that left me feeling really worried and anxious and sick, I had a really good doctor. I came out of my appointment with her feeling incredibly relieved, and we have started a course of treatment to help me deal with this depression. And no, treatment does not just include medication, though I am taking a small dose of fluoxetine (Prozac). It also includes a counsellor and some lifestyle changes to help me cope with stress and anxiety.

So yes, I have depression. But don't worry, because I am working on feeling better :)

It will take a while but I'm going to be just fine :) I have a great support network to help me through it all and right now I'm feeling good because we've made a start on getting me better.

I still don't understand, few days back you told me that you were having a better time with your flatmates and then suddenly an accident and house problem?

Anyhow, I am happy that you are getting better and hope that you get well really soon. If you need any kind of support or help, we all are here for you!

Regards

So whats everyone up to today

Hockey was cancelled and everyone is still in bed! So i am just laying around until someone gets up so I can go ride the pony I don't know whether to give her a day off since everywhere is a bit frozen so we can't do much. But what the heck can I do all day if she has a day off?

Jehanzeb, my flatmates have been great throughout all this. Housing problems have been to do with finding a place to live next year for the five of us, not anything with my housemates.

I've been feeling not-good for a long time now, but I haven't been recognising it, and also, as I use places like this forum for fun and distraction from the slog of life, you're not going to see everything going on in my life in my posts here. I wouldn't have realised just how bad things were or gone to get help if my parents hadn't helped me do that.

I'm taking each day bit by bit. My medication is going to make me feel a little worse before it makes me feel better, and I'm not going to be bright and bouncy again overnight. But in time I will be back to my old self again.

Moomoo - if the ground's too frozen for riding, why not do a load of stuff out of the saddle? Pampering and grooming and stuff for the pony?

Well I wish you a very quick recovery Claire and hope you can come back to your normal self so that we can debate on topics again (sometimes argue! haha..j.k).

Moomoo, it snowed here too and it is sooo cold outside so I don't think I'll be doing anything outside. It took me 30mins to take ice off from my car wind screen yesterday. It was crazy!

Anyhow, if you can't find anything else to do at home then let me know and we can play Mario Kart . Unless you want a game of basket ball

Regards

It's good Claire that depression has been recognized now so I just wish that you'll feel better soon . I'm also happy for your great support network, I know it's important. When we're talking about things like that I can reveal a secret that only my friends and parents know; I'm going through a psychoterapy at the moment because of my emetophobia is pretty bad and causes a some kind of anxiety too.

Yea Sis, I went to Apassionata. It was wonderful! Have to say that I couldn't see anything else but great professionalism and and high trained horses when I watched that show. I'm going to post pics of it on this forum.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
