the forums and thank you for being a part of this kind, open and welcoming
community. We are really sorry to hear that you have been struggling with
depression and major depressive disorder, that must be really tough. It sounds
like you are linked in with some clinical support which is wonderful. We can
totally understand how having a diagnosis can be a relief, it is good to be
able to try and understand these complex conditions within ourselves. Our
journey towards positive mental health is just that, a journey, and sometimes
we feel worse before we feel better.
We want you to know it is ok not to feel
ok, and that you don’t have to go through this alone. If you ever
want to talk to someone, you can call us on 1300 22 4636. One of our specialist
counsellors can then chat to you about strategies to help in the moment, as
well as where in the community you can get other support. Our friends at Lifeline
13 11 14 are also brilliant, supportive and kind.
