hi everyone things are at last starting to improve ive been in this depressive for about a year now i hope i am coming out of it i always do so i am not sure if serquel has helped or not my head feels quite clear if that makes any sense thoughts are not as frequent my mood feels quite stable feels strange i am not getting my hopes up to much well trying not to cant believe what i did while back also i am starting to feel embaressed about some of the things i done in the past never botherd me before does now getting into fights etc but even when i do feel well i still get symtoms like mini highs my mood although feels qiute stable at times from time to time i still feel irratable angry etc but i can control it ive been drinking quite a bit of alchol over the last 3 or 4 months but ive stopped that started going to bed at normal times i find that the serquel is also an excellent sleeping tablet one of my friends has suggesterd that i get a punch bag when i feel angry i think that is an execellent idea.this illness is strange just a few months ago i felt that i could not go on now  life is normal normally i should stay well for aproxx 8 to 12 months i have kept a mood chart for years but who knows maybe this time will last longer

Hi there Gaz , it's really nice to hear from you.

It sounds like you're winning the battle :-)

Please don't get embarassed by your past , because that's in the past , you have a bright new future ahead of you - the only time you need look at these things that have happened is to learn from experience and spread knowledge and understanding to others.

Well done for shunning the alcohol - I've fallen into that trap a lot of times , feeling like crud or really stressed I'll have a drink and my problems melt away only to come back tenfold....NOT nice at all - now I have hot milk with grated nutmeg , and yes , going to bed at the right time DEFFINATELY helps.

The punchbag idea is great - me and OH have been mulling this one over for a while now , as you have to find a sturdy ceiling joist to hang it from unless you prefer the ones for speed boxing , but whatever you choose you'll get a great workout from it which helps relaxation and releases the feel good chemicals in your body that fight depression.

I wish you well , take care ,

Smiler tongue

Good to hear that you're getting back to stable ground again. Embarrassment usually occurs after a state change where you slow down. Regret often occurs after climbing out of the hole... Try to shake it if you can, alteast to the point where you recognize it as part of the process. Drinking, and I've done plenty of it, will only make this worse. I can feel it in about a day now with my current meds. Just the slight speeding up and different mindstate the next day. Good luck man, hopefully things run smooth for awhile.
