I have some of the typical symptoms like loss of interests, and that exacerbates the depression so it becomes a cycle.
Keeping a routine has really helped me. I've had a lot of external factors in the past 3-4 months, But ive found the Gym, making sure I catch up with someone at least once a week really has helped me at least not get worse

I'm on the same meds I been on for years so it's unlikely.

Psychedelic dreams sound cool.
They are, I am floating, flying and doing all sorts of things. Levitating is a constant one I have. Love it, but not on those meds anymore.

I still get them occasionally. They are never nightmarish or scary.

Levitating is a cool dream, and it makes sense to me while in the dream state that I can levitate.

You have to watch out for the power lines when trying to land though ;)
I actually do! Seriously! Especially when I levitate around. I don't really fly, I move around like Magneto from the X-men movies.

I am not Magneto though, I am myself. I sometimes find the dream world far more interesting then the real one.

Yep same, I'm not sure if the power lines represent anxiety or something.. I kind off fly/glide up and down by gently flapping my arms maybe when someone is chasing me.

I have no arm flapping, just Magneto style. Whenever I have these dreams I am in my local area. Not where my house is but where all the shops are. There are powerlines everywhere around there so I think I am just watching out for myself.

I also have this one where I move around without walking. I levitate Magneto style but I am only about 50cm from the ground. Everyone looks at me an awe.

It really is the best thing.

Been eating lots of sugary stuff lately cakes and chocolate to calm depression. Gained 2-4 kgs in a week.

There is no hope when there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

My depression I think is obviously tied to my looking for a new job.

The last ten years I feel I've just been trying to survive mostly, and I felt comfortable in that mode.

I get that, you just want the stability (for me anyway).

Do you mean survive as in keep your job?

Or just survive as you just can't stand it?

I have done more than 10 years in the latter. Until I left and went solo.

I meant survive as in often feeling like impending doom

From 2018 to 2020 I had such a fear of going to sleep, because it meant that I'd only be a few waking moments from having to go to work again. Such an awful, awful time when you are fearing a necessity in that way.

Has gotten much better since seeing a psychologist.

Good to see you're on the mend.


I was a bit of sh*t place last weekend ...mainly due to work beening a campaigner.
Def thinking of standing down on my current role.

As I said to my old work mate who left.
The money is good .
But if your not enjoying the work ..what's the point ..

Worse still, if it’s actually having an adverse effect on your mental health, then it’s untenable. Of course, moving jobs becomes another entirely new stress
