People are buying christmas stuff now though. It's kind of a chicken and egg situation, do people buy it because it's for sale, or is it for sale because people will buy it.
I have been buying stuff for christmas since January, it my way of spreading the cost

Sorry to hear that mate, depression is an absolute bastard, I've lost someone I cared a great deal about to depression recently.

But you've come through it before & you can again, you know the warning signs & can get the help you need to kick that goddamn disease in its stupid face.
Cheers Davy

Aye the difference this time is I feel it coming and recognise it in advance so can deal with it but it's still horrible.

The fact that the music channels don't have their Xmas channel on yet

Come on people I can only listen to them on my phone for so long I WANT THE VIDEOS TOO
For me when the Christmas music channels start is the OFFICIAL start of Christmas. After that anyone who isn't in the spirit should be strangled with fairy lights and displayed for all other joyless souls as a reminder that not joining in with the best time of year is a punishable crime.

Maybe not strangled, just somewhat thrashed.

Depression sucks big time, talking helps so please keep talking. A young guy tried to throw himself off the Forth Road Bridge yesterday, lucky the police got to him in time. Hopefully he will now get the help he needs

Friend of mine tried to drown herself in a river earlier this week, having twice recently overdosed on pills. She's clearly gone over the edge but can't get a hospital place where she could actually get the care and attention she needs.

Thanks everyone I will go to the doctors during the week and see what they say

Having been through it before it is good that am recognising the signs in advance, rather than denying it was happening till I went full scale mental a few years back :?

The thing is I am in a better position now in life with work, finances, family etc than I have ever been and have absolutely no reason for feeling like this but I can't shake it off.

It's like being in a fog it's hard to explain

Losing a filling
No idea what happened to it, hope getting it fixed dont cost much as this money from some extra work is ment to be spent on things I want to buy rather than have to buy

Well bloody hell...

The guy I was talking about had attempted suicide, he went missing & was completely untraceable for a couple of weeks it wasn't a massive leap to have assumed the worst... but today he's only gone & resurfaced. I burst into tears when I found out today so so relieved, he's in a bad way but here's hoping he can get the help he needs.

Well, that's a relief for you. Hope he can be mended.

Getting some spending money and having to buy sensible things with it (A new filling)
I seriously think I was better off not being in work


Watching random Youtube videos about cave/abandoned buildings exploration
Click on one
HAY GUYZ WHATS UP THIS IS JOSH HERE EXPLORING THIS ABANDONED HOSPITAL!
Skipping thought the video its all him filming him self looking round and all I can see is a tiny space behind him
I wish I could click dislike more than once, once for the bloody reaction censored, once for the shaky cam, once for the portrait perspective, once for the annoying voice and once for the crap Jedward style hair

the selfie generation really needs to die
