    Don't ever give up no matter what the situation is. You are a special person in your own way, you have unique qualities. Life can get pretty tough at times and yes giving up may seem like the only answer but trust me you will get through this. If sometimes you are feeling down having a chit chat with someone can massively change your mood. Please don't give up for us because you mean a lot to people and never forget that!xxx

    Hi Michelle for those who love and care about you it wouldn't be easier or less stressful it would be horrendous.  They would miss you so much and would blame themselves for not being able to help you.   Do you want to wish them on them?    What's going on?  Can you talk about it please?    We are all here for you.  Bev x

    maybe this whole feeling of having enough will lead to pushing thru it. Giving up on yourself is one thing, temporarydoing anything to endthing permant is a terrible idea. We all have souls and you are here for a reason, your soul has to learn something so dont mess with fate. It cant go well. Work on finding treatment and self developement until science figures this all out and they will. Taking a while because fda has to s of rules and needs to s of trials before anything is allowed into the public. Which is a good mostly, but hard in anyone who needs a better treatment. And if thats your cat you would devaste him/her. So hold on.

    Hi Michelle,

    Sending you a big hug and encouraging you to take small steps and allow yourself time to rearrange the load you are carrying or even step back from some of it for a while. If my struggle with chronic depression over the past year has taught me anything as far as coping for one more day, it's this:

    There are things in my life causing me stress that are beyond my control. I may not be able to get rid of the problem straight away, but I can take control of my reaction to the stress while I'm waiting to solve the problem.

    Some problems seem like mountains and I just can't face dealing with them. If I can break the problemn down, I can deal with a little bit at a time, as and when I'm ready. This gives me a sense of control and achievement which can boost my self-confidence.

    The road to recovery will be up and down so don't get too disappointed with setbacks along the road. These are just pauses so don't let them rob you of the progress you have made. I've read how some people keep a journal so they can remind themselves of the positives when the negative cloud descends and the depression whispers its lies in your ear.

    Let those around you know how you are feeling and what your boundaries are. Learn to say "no" or "not yet" according to how much energy you have. This can be the most difficult of all because we often keep our mask up for those who spend most time with us. But you need to prioritise your needs sometimes, otherwise you won't be in a fit state to give anything.

    I read somewhere recently that if you want your life to change then you have to make changes in your life. If the same-old, same-old is overwhelming you, then bottom line is that something's got to give. This may mean taking a break from something in your life which is proving unhelpful, or giving yourself some distance from a relationship that is putting pressure on your coping strategies.

    I'm not saying any of this stuff is easy when you feel low and under pressure. They are things that help me reset my negative thinking and make it through one more day.

    You have a lot of friendly support here Michelle so keep us updated on how things are going for you. I think you are a survivor :-) Good luck!
