National Mental Health Week

Other

Lots of people suffer in silence in normal times and during lockdown this is a lot more stressful. Anyone out there struggling, whether it's you or a member of the family? My past experiences are creeping back, and OH is very low but not yet into depression. Lets all give each other virtual support, hugs, flowers, words, not everyone has someone at home or on the phone they can speak to.

I'm worried about my bestie as she suffers with her mental health and she lives alone so I try and cheer her up as much as I can. My husband has suffered with depression on and off for years, luckily he isn't suffering at the moment.

Pleased your husband isn't suffering at the moment. I thought it would be nice to post random hugs for those on LD who may need one but have no access to them and for them to know they are not alone. 🙂

I think many people will be experiencing mental health issues for the first time due to being socially isolated and fears about Covid. It is hard staying positive and motivated at present. This is a thoughtful gesture lilyflower x

Another hug for those who want it. Isolation is getting harder, we all need contact with people. My B in L hit the wall and fell of the wagon yesterday 😞 major intervention and medication and needed 😞 😞 hopefully he won't need to be hospitalised. Image

I’m sorry to hear that lilyflower. It will be hard for his family as well as himself. Better times are ahead.

gerrykelly25 Thank you. He's staying with his mum now as the meds he gets knock him out for about 4 days, hopefully they will work, we'll know Monday. It always seems to happen at a Holiday time, last time it was Christmas 2017, as OH says 'he's had a good spell'. It used to be a lot worse. It can be frightening seeing someone with schizophrenia 'flip' fortunately OH knows how to deal with him. We'll all get through it. 🙂

gerrykelly25 Thank you. He'll be ok, it was brought on by stress of interruption to his usual routine and having to stay indoors.
