Welcome to the forum!
Thank you for your post – it was interesting to read and also quite positive :)
I’m glad you’ve found beyond blue. I joined the site once I had mostly recovered from a bad bout of mental illness. I felt as though I wanted to connect with others.
I’m really sorry to hear about your job loss and parting from your fiancé, as well as having your life threatened. It sounds like you have always been the one helping others, especially by doing your job. I can imagine it would be harder to focus on your own health, when you are constantly faced with the health needs of others, and are working to help them improve their own health.
I’m relieved to hear that you have great support from family, friends and colleagues. Having a number of people who care about you and your wellbeing is such an important part of life. Whenever you feel vulnerable, you can find relief in the support of a loved one. So long as you are there to support them too, when you are able to, you will always have support from others.
It’s great that you are seeing gradual improvement, and that you recognize the value in yourself and your life.
Regularly seeing your GP to keep on track would be beneficial.
Good luck with everything!
