Nice link zel, and well timed.
I've had issues with the black monkey over the last few months but am finally driving the little shit away.
Have a good friend here who is in a bad place right now and spent all night talking to her a few nights back. Managed to talk her away from what she was contemplating and get her to go seek medical help.

Good show mate. If we don't look out for one another we slip through the cracks.

That’s no mean feat D. Especially when you’re fighting your own demons. 😊

Think it's the fact that we can relate to each other and have an understanding of what the other is feeling. Went through a lot of tissues, ran out of vodka and had to start on the brandy, but the night helped both of us. Was a bloody wreck in work the following day though!

A lot of people don’t understand mental health for that very reason. I can only imagine the hangover you had!

Sounds like a solid job well done mate.
shame about the hangover, but catharsis is cathartic.

For those who are furloughed, struggling with the enormity of COVID-19 or just not feeling yourself mentally, remember it’s ok not to be ok.

If you don’t want to talk, you don’t have to.

One really useful resource is this - Every Mind Matter.

Sensible idea to resurrect this thread. I would say that this is well worth a watch:


I thought I was coping quite well since I'm used to remote work, but watching the above made me realise I'd been completely neglecting the physical aspect of looking after yourself when you're stuck in a house.

An excellent post as physical and mental health are closely linked. 😊

Iv'e been furloughed since 23rd March and will be July earliest before i'm back at work. I'm fortunate that because of where i live and size i have managed to find keeping within financial restraints so far 6-7 weeks of solid all day stuff to do which has kept my sanity. As jobs are slowing due to either been done or watching the pennies i am now starting to watch the hours with a sigh. I will get through this because i will make sure i find more things to do but for those at home with families or alone living in smaller properties or without a garden i honestly dread to imagine the state of mind those people could be in it must be a huge concern the mental state of our nation coming through and out of this crisis. Just got to stay strong, stay safe.
