4 tins of sardines and two bottles of whisky

Were waiting on the kitchen worktop and I was in bed... That's when DP knew I was very ill..

I can almost remember buying the sardines on that day.. I don't remember buying the two bottles of whisky. I do remember standing in the supermarket thinking... "I am here to buy supper, but I don't know what to do".. I hzve to get suppper, but I don't know what to do.

That is now a long time past and I have recovered from the worst of it. I know I will never be like eveyone else because I am a manic depressive. But with the support of my DP I am now comfortable in my skin. I am only posting this now because DP told me about the sardines last night. And to say to fellow fruitcakes.. In your darkest time, I know how you feel... but it is possible to come out the other end.

Waves to the fellow fruitcake!
We don't have to be like everyone else. I am not a manic depressive but I do have mental health issues. I am not like everyone else but I can be the healthiest me I can be. (Does that even make sense?!)
Wishing you good days ahead. And thanks for sharing. Too often people don't talk about these issues. We should.

I can be the healthiest me I can

I think that is very good. I wonder how much it would help others if we posted more about how we have recovered and managed to keep going?
