dear All, well even the longest responder can't go without having a relapse, so at the moment I am climbing up the black hole again, so you never can overcome depression even though I often say that I have, but there is always some catalyst lurking in the background ready to pounce again.
Many times I can push it away, but we all have our weak points and by having OCD hasn't helped me at all, moving into a new residence where all your 'friends' disappear when you want them to help you, funny that because we all know it happens with our depression.
My sons have both offered to help, but one lives about 9 or 10 hours away, and the other has 2 young children and works 12 hour night shifts, so I declined their offers, as much as they wanted to help me.
I know that I will get better, it's happened to me before, and this will be no different, so I will be still be posting back to you but only slowly at the moment.
I care for you all and want to thank you all who have kept this forum alive, with many new members joining each day.
You endeavour to help people is what is so lovely about this site, and to those people who I regularly reply back to, I am still here so never give up. Sorry guys look away, but L Geoff. x
