I don't want to seem like I'm poking holes in this story but was it maybe just a very similar incident to this one? That article's been up since last April.


Yep, you're right. Thanks for pointing that out. It was this one:

Sorry to hear that though man, it's so difficult to tell when people are struggling mentally if they really want to hide it.

On that latter point, it really makes me wonder how widespread it is. This guy seemed so chirpy.

It comes from nowhere sometimes. I can be having the time of my life, pure happiness to absolute pits of despair in minutes or hours. No triggers or warnings and it takes you.

One of things that scares me most is that whenever I feel well for any kind of "good" period I'm practically waiting for everything to go tits up. The only thing that consoles me is something I can identify with back when I was just 12 or 13, that I nearly always figure out some way forward, or something happens that is better than before, even if that "way forward" is just total failure and building things up again.

At the weekend my mrs took exception to something that I didn't even do (misread something I did and took it completely the wrong way) and proceeded to shout at me for nearly a solid hour. She also threw in some really hurtful gooseberry fool which was totally uncalled for and it just broke me. I had what I assume an emotional breakdown feels like because I was strawberry floating hysterical. I've never cried like that before, absolutely howling, I had no way of stopping it, just curled up screaming. I had some really dark thoughts that night where I was thinking of walking in to the field and slitting my throat. I dont know whats going on, maybe it's stuff about my parents bottled up (that's still relatively recent, especially with my dad) combined with the job stuff.

I dont know.


Wow. That's...wow.

Are you in toxic relationship? Why is your missus shouting at you for nearly an hour? No offence dude but no one has the right to shout at someone for nearly hour. In fact it is ridiculous that you even sat there and listened for a full hour.

I might be going through anxiety but I don't know why or what's causing. Basically every time I'm about to just fall asleep something jolts me awake and happens several times before fully falling asleep. It is weird and scary cause it feels like i'm falling and something shocks me awake. I think I'm suffering from anxiety but I honestly don't know what I'm usually happy as gooseberry fool.

Edit - @ jawa

Sorry I'm just having a rant because I'm having a gooseberry fool few days. I do that selfish 'my illness is worse than yours' thing sometimes. I'll edit that post.

Hey, mhtl, no need to edit... I can relate to being in that situation. I hope you find a way to get through this current dark zone, man.


Cheers dude. I edited because I don't want my personal opinions making anyone worry about talking. Talking is good, even if it doesn't help me personally. I should know better really.

I have a mental health assessment appointment tomorrow morning and I have no idea what to expect or say. It was arranged about six weeks ago when I was feeling really down and went back on Citalopram, but I've since hit one of those peak periods where I'm actually feeling generally positive. I'm sure there's another valley coming down the tracks eventually as my mood has always fluctuated between both extremes, but I find it difficult to articulate how the lows make me feel when I'm not in the midst of them at that moment.

I want to discuss the possibility of suffering from manic depression but I also feel as though I'm going to walk into this thing and come across like there's no issues at all, wasting the chance to maybe get further help.

You should say basically that, I think. Tell them you get periods of crushing lows followed by periods of relative highs, admit that you aren't feeling too bad but right now but stress the lows are recurring and try to be as honest as possible about how you feel during them (they should ask questions like, Do you lose motivation? Do you stop enjoying hobbies? Do you feel worthless? Have you ever wanted to end your life? so think about how to answer those), and tell them that you'd like help to level everything out. Mention that you've heard of manic depression and ask whether something like that might be going on for you.

EDIT: If you're worried about forgetting to mention something in the moment (say, out of nervousness) then it's OK to write some points you want to discuss down on a piece of paper and take it in with you.

Didn't think to write anything down. I'll be sure to do so as I think I'll need it, cheers Karl.

Im just having these random periods of absolute despair and hopelessness. On the surface I would appear to have everything going for me, but as soon as Im away from a distraction and left with myself I could just end it all there and then.

It can come so fast and with no warning. I can be talking to someone and joking and happy and whatever, and as soon as they turn their back I sink instantly and they turn around and Im glazed over completely gone.

I was working this morning, typing something, and half way through the sentence just stopped, stood up and walked out and sat in the car for an hour on another planet. I was lay in bed a couple of nights ago and with zero warning or build up I was having stabbing pains in my chest which persisted throughout the night.

The best explanation I can come up with is that because Im not medicated my chemical imbalances are more pronounced and sudden rather than being glossed over.

Ive been doing quite a lot of soul searching and personal digging recently when I notice Im in these periods which I dont think is helping me out of them when they arrive, but they have lead to a number of fairly significant revelations which I wont go into here. Me and my partner are involved with a lot of 'out-there' and on the surface very accepting people, but Im finding the deeper I dive the more alone I feel. Really can find no place or group out there I can level with and not have to front in some way or another.

Not a useful post at all but been a while since a mind cleanse.

Well...

I've been hiding for so long time.

All I can say... having an anxiety (GAD) and cognitive thoughts (CBT) are strawberry floating bitch!

Wow,I came on here to vent about how gooseberry fool I'm feeling right now,generally feeling sorry for myself due to being a massive strawberry float up at life and hating myself and feeling pretty strawberry floating bleak, bleaker than I've felt in good year or so blah blah blah,only to find some other poor souls in a very similar boat.

Hang in there guys, we either get through it or we don't. There is absolutely nothing I can say to help,but I can empathise, and maybe on remotest chance that there is some cosmic God out there then maybe we can send out a vibe to him at the same time and tell him 'hey strawberry float face,you've designed our brains all wrong,thanks for that.'

If I lived in America I would genuinely buy a gun and blow my brains out, but I don't so I'll just keep muddling through the best I can. Every other gun free method just has so much scope for failure(trust me,I've got some experience), what other choice do I have.

Hope you guys pull through.

Ps I only write that on here as it's pretty anonymous. I wouldn't dream of saying that to anybody I know,but it's good to share your thoughts with someone else.
