Depression and Anxiety

I want to tell you about This is not a paid review or sponsored post etc. I just think it's something that more people should know about.

How many of us have had to deal with depression and / or anxiety? I'm guessing it's a lot of us! All I need to do is scroll through my Facebook feed and I can see umpteen status updates, motos, and YouTube videos shared about depression or anxiety.

I've been a sufferer. 

Some years ago - before I started this blog - I went through a pretty rough patch after a miscarriage and the breakup of my previous relationship. I was in my early 20's then. I was depressed and anxious, I lost my job over it and started down a dangerous path - thankfully rescued by my now husband. I was medicated to get through it - sleeping tablets, anxiety tablets, and antidepressants. It was not a good time. I started this blog once I started to get better.

Some ten years earlier I had a terrible time dealing with the break up of my parents marriage and the total shattering of the illusions I'd had about my parents - particularly my dad. I had some counselling but I was at an awkward age and talking to a stranger caused about as much anxiety as the situation it self. In the end I refused to go, although in truth I needed the help. I am still hurt and angry 25 years later.

To a lesser degree I also had a spell of post natal depression following the birth of my first child, and I suffer from SAD (though thankfully having the kids helps me deal with that as they do not allow me to become secluded).

While I did get through these two awful phases in my life I can't help but feel there could have been a better way for it to be dealt with. The medication I was given just got me through until enough time had passed for me to recover from what had happened. It didn't make the recovery happen. The counselling I'd had as a child caused more fear and anxiety then it did help.

Imagine if I could have had 24/7 help, without having to make and keep to appointments, without having to face a stranger, without having to be drugged up to the eyeballs just to get me out and about to see the people who could help?

15 and 25 years ago that wasn't possible. Now it is! offer just that. They offer professional treatment which you can access from your PC or mobile device any time of the day or night. It's tailored to your own individual needs. It isn't just "getting you through" either... It is actually treating the cause of your symptoms.

And the best bit? It costs a fraction of what you would pay to attend psychological help one-on-one. 19 weeks of therapy costing only £150 (approx $255)

If you suffer from depression or anxiety, or if you know someone who does, I highly recommend you take a look at their website and register (it's free to register). They offer a whole host of other treatments too from addiction to stress, couples therapy to phobias, and so much more. And what's more, it is international! Not just for the UK.

Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
