What with the job situation Tom, I can see you are probably not in a good place at present. I've been there in the past .......... and how! Believe me mate, you'll come out of this and be much the wiser for it. I wish you well, my friend. (PS You can give me stick as well if it helps get it out of your system. I am used to it and have been abused by some real experts in the past!) ;D
Good luck mate. We know that only time will help bring you back to your normal self, along with the support of your family & REAL friends. Queens Park Rangers was my other life line.
Having been there, thankfully mine was of the milder nature, I know how awful depression is & as far as I'm concerned it is like alcoholism. You can never be certain that it won't come & say hello again.
At the moment the bloody Probate Office are doing their best to send me back into his claws!
We're in your corner, we're all QPR. Stick at it mate, glad to know you've got people around you who care and you've always got us lot here to talk Hoops. It's always good to focus on something else and Rangers are, if anything, going to be a pretty big distraction this season!
Hang in there Tom...you never quite out for the count cos you'll always be a sooper hoop.
Depression is an ailment just like other mental and physical conditions. There is a lot of it about. I used to knock about in my adolescent years with 3 mates all of whom have gone down with various conditions; one a bad depressive, another a manic depressive with paranoid schizophrenic episodes and another had chronic anxiety attacks that would make him fall down flat and needed beta blockers. They all joke that I am the common denominator...they might be right!
