    Hi to all. My name is Jill and I suffer from depression and anxiety. I am 45 and have suffered from depression for at least 17 years and tried many meds, at least a dozen. Currently I am barely stable on a combination of an ssri plus antipsychotic. I am sick of the med-go-round and have almost lost hope that anything can be found that will truly help me. I have also tried several kinds of therapy including CBT and ACT. Currently doing CBT again.

    As for my interests, I like knitting and love cats, and one of my kitties is in my lap right now.

    Hope to get to know you all better soon.

    OH and BTW, my avatar and my username are both from the old BBC TV show Robin of Sherwood. Lady Wolfshead is Maid Marian and means lady outlaw.

    Cooee and greetings to the family, Jill, from both myself and the little cutie-pie PPG Bubbles (who has become SF's mascot) and she loves everyone. :)

    I am truly sorry that you feel the way you do, however, here on SF, I do believe that you will be able to talk with and make many wonderful friends who are like-minded and in the same position as you - SF is not just a community support Site, here, everyone, from members to the staff have their own stories to tell and things that they are dealing with,and we all are very friendly, compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental, so anything you want to talk, please never be afraid to talk about it, either on the forums in the chat itself. There is always someone in the chat, whenever you need it, so you are never alone.

    Kitties are so sweet - I have four of them, myself. Sweet, that is, except for when they hover around the lounge room and plant themselves at my feet and stare at me while I am eating!
