    I've just read this report and I thought it might be useful on here. I hope everybody is keeping well :)

    I found the last part of walking the soldier back towards trauma is really unexpected and therefore interesting.

    Having such a big change in my life has had a bigger effect on me then I thought.

    I have twinges of anxiety that I've not to experience for a long time.

    This too shall pass, mate. It's perfectly natural to feel anxious in times of uncertainty but it won't be long before you're back at it, feeling a bit daft that you were worried over an insignificant blip.

    Keep at it, get some learning done, good things are coming.

    As the others said Cas, don't worry, this is a perfectly normal thing to feel. Just keep going, and you'll be okay.

    If it doesn't go away, you know there's people you can talk to if you want any support. <ok>

    Thanks Kemps. I guess I'm just in flux.

    I'd forgotten how cathartic playing guitar.

    Thought this might be appropriate to post here. Dean Windass and Tyson Fury discussing depression

    I'll leave the redirect on for a bit to make sure people get chance to see it, as it is well worth a watch. <ok>

    I have such admiration for people like Deano and Tyson Fury. People like them, they've earned their fame in an obviously macho environment and I do think that might help, as Dean said here "People who work in factories and such" might be less worried about seeking help.

    A brilliant interview and I hope it helped them too.

    I don't know if posting this the right thing, but...

    I went to a vegan festival last night in Trinity Market with a few friends and went for a beer afterward.

    I left about midnight and headed over Drypool Bridge. As I approached I can hear loads of shouting, screaming and crying.

    There was a lad halfway over the barriers threating to jump in the river and his girlfriend trying to stop him. We somehow manage to persuade him to come down and he ran off. Me and the girl how a look for him around the area. But we couldn't find him.

    I just waited with the girl and until someone came and picked her up.

    Strangely I just left a friend who is a mental health social worker.

    Hoping they're both okay.

    You did a good thing Cas , fair play to you

    (I was at the Vegan market too by the way, quite good I thought. The pizzas took an age, but were nice and we had Caribbean too and that was very good)

    I tried to do my bit. I was scared if I'm honest.

    Yeah, it was great. I had veggie patties with rice and peas and BBQ. I also tried jackfruit for the first time. Absolutely amazing.

    Understandable to be scared in that situation.
    You try to do the right thing, and you did, but you can’t have guaranteed that the outcome would have been ok

    (I have jackfruit a fair bit. You can get it tinned, takes about a week to cook though <laugh>)

    Erm... I gonna sound like a right arse considering previous posts on this thread, including earlier on this page, but I needed to get this posted.



    I came very close to attempting suicide again a couple of days ago. I had a pretty bad breakdown on Christmas night, and I've been out of it since to be honest.

    I sat in the Humber Bridge parking lot for the best part of several hours before eventually driving off, only made it about a mile before pulling over and having a full breakdown.

    Funny thing is, I think what stopped me doing it was actually my grandma. She's been pretty ill over the Christmas period, and had a bad fall a couple of days before Christmas. The idea of her being upset in her current state did me in more than anything else.

    I don't wanna ramble on any further so I'll end it here. Just needed to get this off my chest somewhere, and I honestly trust you lot more than my family atm.


    Here's to a happier new year. <ok>
