    I am so so sorry to everyone for posting so blatantly on the forum Tuesday night when I crashed big time. It was thoughtless and I apologise. I haven't read any forums or responses as can't be on here right now. I just want to work on myself for a bit but really wanted to say sorry to you all and to BB. 

    Kind regards

    Suz xx

    Hi Suz

    You've said sorry three times and on here, we all know there's an unwritten rule that you don't need to even say it "once".

    I'm so pleased that you've written back and just to see your name here again;  BUT the massive thing here is YOU.  And you have to do whatever it is you need for yourself at this time.  We did receive a message from Christopher stating that he'd been in touch with you to make sure that things were ok and mentioned that after all, this is an internet site where people have the "right" to come and go as they please.  That's where you didn't need to say sorry. 

    We are all concerned for you (as we're concerned for everyone who comes here) but we are concerned for you and how you were during last week.  Hence why there were some posts - just kinda checking up on you to make sure that you're ok.

    I really don't think I'm expressing myself well here, but all I'm trying to say is that, you need to solely look after yourself and by you not coming on this site for a while was one of the ways you were doing that.  And for that please please don't feel as though you have to come back and apologise to any of us. 

    This is tough, because I know what I want to say, but don't think I did it very well.

    I'll just finish by saying "Suz, take care - come back here whenever you feel ready too AND if you don't, then that's cool too.  You are the priority right now and I'm glad that you have identified that you need to work on yourself right now".

    My kindest regards to you Suz

    Neil

    dear Suz, I have to agree with Neil and our apologies if we appeared to have worried you.

    There does become a time when we just become so bamboozled, so confused about our whole depression, and why nothing seems to be able to work, in our endeavour to overcome this damn illness, and this is where you are at the moment, too many problems going through your mind, we can understand this.

    I remember when you had your photo on, but then it was taken off by yourself, so this was an indication that trouble was looming, I just wish that we could have helped you or steered you in the right direction, but now you have a lot to think about.

    As Neil has said that we hope that you can come back sooner rather than later, but this is entirely up to yourself.

    I do want you to remember us, and also remember that you have helped other people, so please get well, as we have been through a lot together. L Geoff. x

    Hi Suz,

    Don't apologise - you needed to have a break from here and that's okay.

    Sometimes being on here is just too much and that's okay.

    Pls take care and hope you come back on here soon.  Look after yourself, you're the number one priority at the moment.

    Take care, thinking of you

    Jo xxx

    Hi Neil, Geoff and Jo, 

     Thank you for your support and kind words. I value you all very much and you have all been so wonderful. This has been a huge depressive/panic attack episode and I am trying to get help. Some positive steps – I am still determined. I probably won’t be on here much for the time being but I will be down the track or maybe sooner. It’s all one day at a time at the moment. Take care – Suz xx
