Let's be honest anyone would feel terrible after enduring what you have over the last few months.

I don't know how long it will take op and all you can do is cooperate and don't over stretch yourself. Try and get out even if you just go and walk round the block for ten minutes. Its a small thing and it may take every fibre of your being to set foot out the door but its a positive thing.

My Doctor says people that have depression function at different levels and can have good and bad days. She says she wants all her patients to function at the very best level they can get to and that there are steps forward and back but the one thing not to do is to beat yourself up about being unwell and not managing.

I spent almost four months indoors last year, yesterday I went out for dinner and actually laughed. Which this time last year I would have never believed could have happened.

I really do know how you feel and have even had a PG loss which triggered a bad episode for me though many years who.

Have you connected with your counsellor? I have had varying results depending on who I'm having counselling with.
