    hiya mum2jord :diva:

    well done mum2jord :mrgreen: i know how nervous you were about going back to the doc's and telling your folks about being ill, so you SHOULD be proud of yourself :ok: it can be very hard to explain to others about depression when we are ill with it and unfortunately some peeps just don't 'get it' :huh:, so here's a virtual hug :hug: :rainbow:

    keep posting mum2jord, you're amongst understanding friends here :mrgreen: :wink:

    cheers,

    Ken~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :cheers: :bubbly: :rose:

    Well done mum2jord. I still haven't told my mum. She went off on one the other day about \"people who say they are depressed\" so I didn't feel inclined to share. But friends and other close family know so the support network is there.

    It is frustrating but I know she would just blow it off as a \"phase\" then keep asking if I was alright so it is easier to keep my mouth shut.
