    Only a fellow depressive could appreciate this. I certainly do, somehow it’s very reassuring to feel smoeboty else experiences the same problems, Thank you 🙂

      Thanks a lot for this comment Larain. It might make me sound a bit soft-headed but knowing someone has gotten something out of one of these daft doodles makes it a very fulfilling thing to carry on with 🙂

      All the best,

    I’ve been resting for what feels like months, but I think I’ve only been resting effectively for about a fortnight. It’s so hard to tell yourself you’re allowed to rest…it seems so counter intuitive.

      One of the first things I had to learn (and I really do mean learn) is to go to bed when I needed to. It took me ages to get it into my head that if I needed to go to bed during the day – I had to do it.

      In exactly the same way as male pride screws people up by them not getting enough rest and time to heal a muscle they’ve pulled – I had managed to perform a mental equivalent and often enough that it became habitual. These days if I need to rest – I get rest. My mental welfare is my number one priority.
