Hi CookieJo,

Welcome to the forums and thank you for reaching out to us.


There are so many of us who can relate to how you are feeling and I am sorry you are feeling so low at the moment. I know from experience what it feels like being in that black hole, I was there about 12 years ago, It is a very lonely and isolated place to be. I joined the forums earlier this year and it has been a positive step for me as I hope it will be for you.


I guess my first question is what are you doing at the moment to help you to get on top of this. Have you been diagnosed by your GP? Are you seeing a counsellor? Are you on medication?


So glad you have a fur baby, a lot of us do, they are so healing to have around and give so much unconditional love.


Is there anything particular you would like to talk about?

We will be here when you feel ready to talk,
