Hi there

Not open for further replies.
Hello everyone, I'm Janine and I live in Scotland, UK.

For about 9 months now Ive been feeling very low indeed and theres no apparent reason behind it, it seems.

I could go on for hours about how Im feeling, Ill post on the forums shortly, but just like to say hello first. For the first time in my life it seems Ive found a whole community of people who care about others, do not judge and offer to help.

Janine xx

Scotland's cool. Annie Lennox is from Scotland, and Robin Williams, too, I do believe.

Nine months.. as I used to struggle with depression, I recognize that as about the end of winter, when the lack of sun has had months to work on our brains.
I think about this sunlight issue a lot. Nowadays, I don't get depressed, but when the days get short, I sometimes can feel drained of energy to the point where I want to lie on the floor and curl up in a fetal position.

Anyway, I'm new here too, but glad you're here, too.

:welcome: to the Forum, Janine :)
Obviously Vikki knows me too well :tongue: I was just going to post about how good it was to see another Scot joining up! We are unfortunately few and far between here :laugh:
Anyway, welcome, I hope you find a lot of support here, and I hope to see you around :)
Take care, and if you need anything, feel free to PM me :)
