A few weeks ago I signed up to what could be described as a social media sit for people like me to suffer and battle with depression. At first I was a little apprehensive, having had some really bad experiences with popular SM sites, one of which I ejected from no less than three times, due to abuse some of which was vile.
But this seemed to be different and so far it’s going well. I’m very reluctant to say which one as I don’t want to advertise any particular self-help group, because what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another. All I will say that it is based in the United States, and the people I’ve conversed with so far seem genuine and have a desire to support others.
I'm telling you this on the back of what has been a rather challenging week here and there. I felt a lot better last Thursday having spent two hours with a very good friend of mine, a curate, in a local church who is young, progressive, supportive and completely free from rigid dogma. I had no problem in opening up to this but who I’ve known for some time, and we are to have further meetings over home made cake and delicious coffee.
Im writing this blog post from my warm position under a quilt, having already had my two pieces of dry toast and black coffee. I’ve been on a health and fitness kick since January 1, in an effort to loose 50 lbs in weight ( one pound a week). So far I’ve lost 12 lbs, so I’m very much on target. But watch this space.
