Just remember it can take about 6 weeks to work fully.Make sure you take these first thing in the morning WITH food as they can make you feel sick on an empty stomach. They can mess with you're REM cycles a bit so that's why it's better to have it first thing in the morning. You know the score mate.Anything that feels weird, don't mess around.Tell the Doc. My best mate takes these.He's doing a lot better.

This thread seems to have fallen by the way side. Please remember, as a community we can support one another during difficult times and we do this well. Please also remember that sometimes it isn’t easy for people to ask for support so please try and notice if people’s behaviour changes.

i have in just been getting over a massive bout of depression that only came to light that i was suffering when i went and spoke to someone about the lack of motivation that i had. i would promise to do things and then make excuses when i could not be bothered or would withdraw into my own little world and think i wish people would just leave me alone.
Family wise this had also become a problem as well as my 2 kids dont live with me and getting over to see them often would take a strain on me both in effort and money. Meaning that again i would look for any excuse not to go.
This is also why i have missed so many of the meets and again just withdrawn and not even been on the forum. i got bored with the running and gunning games and started playing a lot of single player stuff (again withdrawing from people) even being on chat with you guys was stressful and again i would avoid it. i have managed the odd chat and can just about manage road rat on world of warships, but the bigger channels i try to avoid.
i have compensated by trying to spend money on crap i dont need and also avoid those dreaded bills and phone callls that could also be stressfull.
Ask any other the older members they will tell you i used to be a gobby shite and always up for a laugh. But that all left me for a while.

After speaking with a number of people on my issues and developing a lot of coping methods i am on the mend i still have times when i could easily revert back but i am at the moment able to get passed it.

Well done everyone on this forum for talking about this issue and reading your comments finally gave me the courage to talk about something that has been affecting me for so many years but laid hidden even to me........

ahoy Mic, even if i don´t know you yet, it feels that you are on a very good way m8

1st step: to realize that there is a problem - check
2nd step: looking for some help - check
3rd step:keep on talking about the problem _ check

Imo that road has already taken u a far way up the sunny hill comming out of a dark deep valley!!!!

but always keep in mind what the japanese say: if you have walk a hundred miles you have to look at ten miles as half of the way


looking forward to meet u some time Sir

Life sure can suck sometimes, but you're born with nothing, take nothing with you when you go, and it only costs what you earn along the way, so you may as well stick it out and see how you go. That's a mindset that's been keeping me going for some years now.
Or, if you like gaming analogies: Life is one big grinder with no objective. You level up every year for free. Just play for the sake of the game. The alternative is shit. No gameplay, no rewards, fuck all, so fuck that! :)

Hey Mick, thanks for opening up.

The trouble with any mental health problem is understanding it yourself. When you do there’s the stigma that goes along with it so it makes it bloody hard as it’s another battle to face.

I’m glad you seem to be on the right path. I hope knowing that there’s support here at EBS will help even in a small way. Keep safe. 😊
I know being a member of EBS has really helped me with my own struggles.
