Some of you might remember I posted a while ago and was thinking of trying more natural approaches to combatting my depression rather than medication. So far I've been doing really well, I took up yoga and walking which has helped out lots and the breathing exercises really help in times of stress. I started eating better which has made me feel so much better! I'm on a mainly protein and carb diet but obvioulsy I'm trying to keep it balanced so I can stay balanced. The factors which I can control are working well.
However, I'm still having problems getting on the same wave length as my parents and it's still really getting to me. I feel completely unsupported and alone with no one to talk to or understand. I began taking my Dogs to an agility class on Saturdays so I could get out and exercise, meet new people, have fun with the Dogs. I've been having a wonderful time and it has really helped me improve relationships with people not just the Dogs. My Dad has now decided that he doesn't like having to take me and fetch me and he doesn't like the thought of me taking the Dogs and therefore I have to stop going. He says he's being reasonable but I was using this experience to help me in my career when I apply for a local job with a rescue organisation next June after I complete my current course and for a degree which I want to complete. So by my Dad cutting me out of this circle it could harm my chances of work and education, he says I'm overreacting and I just feel like I'd rather live in a bus stop than live here. Can anyone help?????
