Depression

I dont mind saying that i suffer with depression. Im a very sensitive person and having lost my b/f 2 yrs ago am now faced to living on my own. Grief is a big part of my depression i know but its other things too that cause it. the first and foremost as regards to depression and the road to recovery is to admit you suffer with it, such as alcoholics, drugs etc.... no one else can tell you. if you can admit that then u are half way there. seek medical advice and talk, i have done so and find it incredibly successful. a lot of the medical services 'mental health teams ' run groups on certain aspects and its great to be able to chat in confidence to others that also suffer with the same problems as yourself. I live in the country and by getting out just a few days each week has helped me an awful lot.. My partner is buried down the road and i visit him often, but the thing that upsets me most is that he is surrounded by young lads who have committed suicide. life is hard as we all know but what we do with it is what matters most.. we have one go at it .... so make the most of it and if u suffer with depression.... GO SEEK HELP... OH AND ANYONE THAT KNOWS PEOPLE SUFFERING WITH DEPRESSION PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT SAY ' PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER'!

They do care what you look like.
And
They are not your friend.
What other friends do you provide free food and accommodation for for their entire lives?

How do you know this? My mother's labrador always welcomes me with her wagging tail and happy face when I visit. Pets have always been nicer to me than people, apart from my mother and aunt. They don't refuse to be around you because you cramp their style for example.

I'm very skeptical of professionals who "know" all the information in the psychiatry books but have never experienced mental/emotional difficulty themselves.

Well I am one of those profressionals and I certainly wouldn't claim to know all when it comes to mental health it's life long learning, CPD and study once you have completed your formal training. Believe me I have had my fair share of mental/emotional difficulties over the years and any professional who says they don't is probably lying through their teeth. All therapists undergo regular supervision and most if not all myself included attend regular therapy either weekly/bi-weekly in order to deal with our own issues and what our clients bring up for us. Without that in a very short time we would literally burn out and that is something that is very hard to come back from.

In my experience and in my opinion it is more helpful to get advice from people who have gone through something similar.
I think it is similar to AA.
You get better help and real understanding from fellow alcoholics than from someone who has studied alcoholism but has never struggled with the negative effects of alcoholism.

If you think talking to a dog is better than having a 2 way conversation with a human, then good luck.
Animals don't refuse to be around you because you give them food and shelter.
I bet if you gave your mother's labrador a good kick in the ribs every time you visit, he would refuse to be around you or he would refuse to let you be around him.

And I would agree with you on that how can you understand something like that if you have never experienced anything even remotely similar

Anyway Falconer, why would you prefer an animal too a human to communicate with?

I can understand preferring to talk to a dog
than
to talk to someone who doesn't like you and you don't like them.

Because humans don't accept me into their social circles I prefer to communicate with a pet. if that ever changes than that will change but I will still find the friendship of labradors a good thing. Conceptually I would prefer human company but humans just do not accept me so here's to debating with canine (platonic!) companions who haven't a clue what I'm saying.

So are you getting a dog then, any other pets you think would be interesting and have groups or competitions, you could take part in?

Pets are not allowed on the estate but I will ask for a derogation so i can get a small labrador. Nope I have no interest in acquiring other pets.

no such thing as a "small Labrador"
they're a large breed.

Pets, what ever animal you choose, make wonderful companions. I have dogs and other pets too and the dogs always know when im feeling down or happy... often when im down my dogs will come up to me a give me a nudge just as much as to say' im here dad'.. to some it might sound daft but if you love animals then you will understand. they are also en excuse to get up in the morning and get out which can only benifi not only the dog but your self.
