Hi, sorry for the late reply, we found a local office from the web and had a few words for advice, then made an appointment for a meeting at the office, then it was all down to my son and "the expert", each case can be very different so my advice is to speak to Mind and have a chat, you have everything to gain, good luck.

My son had depression for years he kept it well hidden, we didn't know, one time in his teens he went missing for 3 days, we still don't really know where he went as we contacted all of his friends, he got married some years later but that didn't last, he came down to Devon from London to live with us for about 6 months, he had no responsibilities we saw to that, my wife saw a job going in a cafe, just a washer up but a start back to normal, he went out day after day looking for work even in places that was not advertising, after a little while he had 3 part time jobs, thing were looking up, then we heard about "Mind" an organisation that could help, he had a couple of visits and felt much happier with life after them, after moving back to London into his own rented flat he took up driving lessons (god, he is not a natural driver) cycled all of his life, he passed his driving test and now drives a powerful motor bike that sounds like a bloody thunder storm coming down the road, he has done so well....we are proud of what he has achieved, we are all different and need different way to succeed, I wish you luck for your long successful future .

I hope it does for you mate. For that to happen as a starting point you got to take stock of whatís causing you to feel the way you do.

Does anyone find quite the booze helps?

I take it you meant quit the booze? Binging is probably the worst thing you can do but a wee dram isn't likely to hurt (unless you are on medication that will react to it.)

Depression can be a terrible place to be and I've known friends who have had it and it can be a monster. The first step to overcoming it is recognising you have it, which you have and then taking steps to recover.

Having a job you hate is probably dragging you down but at the moment but with the present economic climate, there aren't a lot of options. Turn a negative into something like, at least I have a job, is one step to make it more bearable.

Fishing, countryside walks and exercise will improve your well being. Make plans to do at least one activity a week that you enjoy and just looking forward to it will make things more bearable.

Hope you can take something from this and can look forward to a more positive future.

Noise believe it or not.

I have an app on my phone with different nature noise choices, wind, rain falling etc etc. My favorite is the sea lapping on shore, set it to run for an hour at the lowest level poss and always fall asleep.

Another good one is a resting heart beat, it's the first thing you ever heard and about the only thing you heard for 9 months, your brain associates the sound subconsciously with safety and security.

I found putting on pjís a couple hours before bedtime worked pretty good in the sense that it differentiated between still been overactive if you like and settling down.

Could be worth a try in that pjís help in calming before bed as they put you in a relaxed state of mind.

Edit - If my age just donít p155 in ya slippers.
