Best Friends







Every day, at the same time, she waits for him. He comes and they go for a  walk.
Wouldn't it be great if we all had friends like this...no words needed...they just intuitively recognize the value of each other in their lives and act accordingly.

Participating in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy sessions has taught me a lot about anxiety. Here are some of the lessons I have learnt recently.

'How long will the magic stay?'

At first no one answered Roland's question, and so he asked it again, this time looking across the living room of the rectory to where Henchick of the Manni sat with Cantab, who had married one of Henchick's numerous granddaughters.

Weekend Walkabout - Back To School




Welcome to Weekend Walkabout, a place to share and explore the different corners of our world.

Symptoms Of Depression



Recently, I attended cognitive behaviour therapy sessions to help me deal with my anxiety problems. At the beginning of my first session, I was asked to complete a depression/anxiety questionnaire. I assured the therapist I wasn't depressed and that my issue was anxiety. The anxiety results were as I expected but I was shocked by how depressed I was according to the test. I still didn't really quite believe it and focused mainly on my anxiety issues.

Now that I'm feeling much better and well on the way to recovery, I realise how depressed I was back then. I remember telling a few close friends how I have suffered from depression in the past and they were shocked because I come across as a fun and bubbly person.

During my CBT sessions, I learnt about recognising the signs of depression early.

Here are some of the warning signs:

Lack of interest in activities that you used to find enjoyable
Low mood that lasts longer than two weeks
Changes in sleeping patterns...waking in the early hours of the morning, oversleeping
Changes in appetite

Many individuals suffer from at least one depressive episode during their lifetime. What I've learned is that it's often difficult for an individual to realise they are depressed and as in my case, do not realise they are until they start feeling better. It's therefore a great idea for all of us to learn about recognising the warning signs. This may help you or a loved one seek help and get better sooner.

I've written an article at the Helium website about this topic. Follow the link to learn more...symptoms of depression

Happy mental health
