Short introduction about myself, I'm Fred 55 and from Portsmouth. Seem to be going round this circle of depression, one moment I think I'm ok the next I just don't want to wake up.

Had I few counselling sessions over the last few years and again at the end of the course I think I've sorted my issues, then bang a little later back they come. I think the dark cloud is far away and I'll spot in coming, but then it's right back over me.

I'm on sertraline 150mg a day and started counselling again and going to a mindfulness group once a week, and been signed off work.

Not sure why half the time I feel the way I do, and why I feel like I'm pushing my finger down on the self destruct button.

Right better stop there for now.

Well done for keeping in touch with your Dr.
Do you have anyone around you who helps with your support? What about eating and drinking properly?

Not really anyone to support me, isolated myself a lot and no real friends. I was doing well losing weight and eating the right things but given up lately and eating rubbish, I don't drink enough water I guess but I very rarely have alcohol.

Why have you given up healthier eating? Do you live with anyone?

Comfort foods and just not really caring too much about myself, when you don't want to wake up in the morning not a lot of point worrying about your diet.
