Thanks again to you too Birdy. I must say again that i find the generosity of time and spirit of contributors such as yourself, on these forums, inspiring.
It has been interesting to reflect over the last couple of weeks, since I’ve been in a more rational headspace, about the impact of both not being fully employed and of social isolation, on my well being. As a case study of one, it has strongly reinforced for me the research about those factors being strongly related to mental health challenges generally and depression specifically.
I hope to be be able to use my experience for the benefit of others, in some way. Even just as a contributor here.
I am sure that not every minute will be positive moving forward, but I do feel in a far far better position to respond to the lower points if and when they arise.
