    Hello Wendy

    Sorry you are so low, we are sitting here on the Scottish Border with no where to go on New Years Eve.

    I am lucky to have my Wife here and our Pax, we are also looking after next doors dog. 

    I will hug onto my Sausage Roll and Fruit Cake as I have a couple of double Whiskies and a few strong beers.

    Happy Hogmoney

      Aww thanks bob for the reply, I'm in Scotland too, 😊I am lucky in a way as I have wonderful kids,

      I'm sure I will be ok it's another one of those blips, they are really up and down at the moment, and when the down hits it feels so strong! But at least I'm not always down like before,

      Well enjoy your fruit cake and whisky and a happy new year to you, your wife and pax,

      Hi marky

      Sorry to hear about your separation, it is a hard time, Iv been on my own for 2years now, but have my wonderful kids,

      Yes 14 weeks but I do have some good weeks, not like before, as before citalopram I was having bad time all the time, that's how I know they are working they just take time,

      My mum and that are in America and my best friend is working but I have the kids, and they have invited some friends around,

    Good morning. No matter how much medication you take it won't help with the lonely moments, as sad as it sounds. Holidays are usually hard for anyone being alone and ever harder with people that have mental illnesses. Today marks 5 weeks on it and I am still very shaky, don't wanna do much, my anxiety seems to not blow over board and I can manage it a bit better with out going into a full blown panic attack. I am also a single mom of two boys, both suffering mental illnesses. One thing I have learned in this world having kids is that they will never leave u even at your darkest moments. Partners come and go could be 27 years could be 2 years or could be till death do us apart, but remember your little humans that u created will be with u. I don't know your history or the age of them, but hopefully they will be with you on this day, throw your own party, dance be silly just let loose, u ain't hurting no one. Just think to your self how lucky u are to have children, some people don't have zero family and I kids and they are all alone. So put a smile on your face, and you got this, u don't need some man to make u happy, u have the power to be happy with out a partner.

      Thanks sanja

      I'm not feeling alone because I don't have a partner, I feel alone in this illness,

      And yes your right I do have my kids they are here and I'm grateful for them, I love them to bits, we are going to have a wee party together, the bigger ones have friends coming round,

      I'm just feeling a bit out of sorts it will be fine!

      I hope you and your kids have a lovely new year,

      Wendy xx
