    My name is Eddie, I am from the UK. Been suffering with servere depression for most of my life. It's particularly acute at the momement as I going through a disciplinary at work. I made some stupid mistakes, largely through not concerntrating and thinking things through and am in trouble. So am in danger of losing a job I spent years training for. Its depressing and stressful.

    I am just tired of being around (seemingly) happy people all the time with thier perfect lives. So just came here to meet some people who understand.

    hi Eddie:

    welcome to this site. I'm pretty new here myself, but have found it to be a good place for support and understanding. people "get it" in terms of what it can be like to deal with major depression and all. it's a tough road at times for sure.

    sorry to hear about the job situation. that's gotta be super stressful. hope it all works out alright.

    have a good rest of the day, Eddie.

    take care,

    Work send me to see a counseller who is doing CBT with me. He feels I have insight. Family are quite supportive so thats ok. I am finding work difficult with this hanging over me, though I guess its a positive I havent been suspended. Truth is I dont really know which way it will go.

    stick with these sessions. how many have you done so far?
    anything at all benefit yet?
    also stick with them 'cause might lessen the bad effect of disciplinary result?

    Hey Eddie, welcome to the forum. I think you'll find some understanding here, and hopefully some support and comfort. I can imagine it's extremely stressful to be going through all that at work; I'm sending you good thoughts hoping everything works out for the best. I also hope that after your disciplinary things are done that life eases up a bit for you. Hang in there, it was a strong thing to seek out a forum for help. :hug:
