have any idea how flippin amazing each of us are for just getting through day by day... we are far from failures. We are actually resilient and strong!

Its not easy and yet we do it.... somehow.....

I'm having a gushy proud moment of all of us who despite wanting to quite sometimes, keep on keeping on..

good on you all x

This post brought years to my eyes and I'm feeling pretty up at the mo.

It's truly wonderful and tomorrow everyone who's keeping on should go and buy herself a little bunch

Of flowers to put on the side in the kitchen to remind her that she is strong and brave and wonderful for not letting IT win!

thanks

well. so often mental health problems and those who suffer them are seen in a negative light by those not in the know....

how ignorant! A day in our shoes would soon set them straight tho -

MN, makes me realise I am not nuts and I am not alone.

I am ok, just the way I am. As are you guys! xxx

Jesus, you should pop over to our little village (a support thread on here, look it up) you will find a bunch of strong women who battle through every day, but we get through - your post is just lovely and so so true.

Thank you x. Am having a v tough day, but have got some stuff done and am trying to make a plan for getting what else I need to do done before bedtime. It is so tough. But as you so rightly say, we do it and no-one else can properly understand how hard it can be. Thanks flowers
