I swear once the brain has "broken" once, it is broken for life.

I hate waking up with a black cloud over my head, knowinging that you just have to push it aside and get on with a full throttle work life irrespective.

It just makes it more difficult to get traction and keep smiling.

No point in any pills... It doesn't stop the problems...

Hey ho...
First server problem of the day has just called.

Depression sucks :(

Even if the pills don't solve the problems, sometimes they make you more able to cope with them - or find a way to make them better.

Yeah - I keep thinking about going to the GP... Last time they just gave me prozac and I just got lost in the sofa for about a week before I realised and stopped taking them.

I had a decent reaction to something called Lustral many years ago...

I've been "fired" from two counsellors as they couldn't deal with me...

Hey ho...

Don't know what the answer is. Just gotta keep soldiering on against people breaking technology, or technology breaking itself...

Lustral (sertraline) is an SSRI so probably worth mentioning that to the doctor if it worked before - they might give you that again, or maybe citalopram, another SSRI which is pretty good for mild to moderate depression.

Counselling isn't for everyone. I've certainly never got on with 'the talking cure'.

Oh right... Will have to Google for SSRI's and what that means. LOL.
But yeah, for the mo, it's full throttle.
Good for business, bad for the brains.

Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitor - they keep seratonin, a neurotransmitter, floating around for longer so messages get passed around the brain better.

They don't fix stuff - that's what the talking's for - but they can help keep your head on a more even keel.

I seem to recall something about having one bout of depression making you more prone to others (or was it certain people are just more predisposed to have them..?).

But, yes - they suck royally. But there is help out there if you ask for it. Definitely talk to the GP.
