I suppose nobody's seen this side of me cos it happened around when I disappeared, so I won't say too much.

But Dave, the best advice I ever got was to decide on one thing you want to do every day, and do it. For the first few weeks it'd be things like 'brush my teeth' or 'eat some cereal'... Never a 'don't...' anything, just something you want to do that day. Eventually I got to 'take a walk to the corner shop' (literally across the road)... Then 'buy a magazine and read it'... Every step is hard but every step is worth it, honest. The meds help too. I read your blog - sounds like there are plenty of people around who care. Keep on keeping on indeed x

It's been a weight lifted getting the stuff off my chest on here and in the blog. Yesterday I decided new month, new start, lifted my head and asked the universe to guide me and be positive......and what do you know, only went and landed a fucking dream job working from home!!

The Dave is back! :wink:

Pack it in you perverts. Little Dickies missis told me in bed his user name was self explanitory.
Anyway.....Depression is shit, if anyone on here is suffering or suffered, then talk about it, let it out, PM me or rant on here anything! We're all in this together.

Take care

The Dave x

Read the blog and just had a listen to your music Dave. Brilliant stuff. Your music's got that Americana vibe that got me in to great bands like Lambchop and Whiskeytown.

Glad to hear things are looking up Dave! I know we dont know each other really but from what I do know you're a top bloke and not to mention a great musician too - RP is right on the ball with his comments

The stigma of anxiety and depression still hangs over me. Good days, bad days. Medication has helped to stop me slipping back down to the bottom. I've had to stop drinking, if I drink these days it literally does 'end in tears'. I still miss someone, but thats past and dead, you can't go back. The future is hard to think about, I get up, I work (nice to be in my own place working though) I go to bed. I worry about money, my kids, my friends. Depression is a thief that robs you of your self esteem, self worth, pride....most things. I know it can't always be this way, things will pick up and the sun will shine again. I've got involved with groups that help with anxiety and depression and have the germ of an idea to raise some funds for these excellent people. Small charity acoustic gig probably, but it's just an idea at the moment. I'd publicly like to thank Craig, Maggie, Jan, Denise and various others off the forum for being true friends and sticking by me these past few months. Thank you.
Keep on keeping on people and I'll nip in from time to time. If any of you people are going through any form of what I've been through, please seek help, don't be afraid to talk and look after yourselfs.
D x
