    Just ramble whatever you feel at the time, maybe do it in stages, or bullet point it, make a list of feelings.

    Might help just to unload?

    I'm really sorry to hear that you guys are feeling so down at the moment. =( It sounds absolutely awful and I really hope things improve for you soon!

    Hazel, I'm really glad to hear that your boyfriend is being really supportive. (I know that being supportive to your partner should go without saying, but I've had less than supportive boyfriends before and one of my friends is currently dealing with depression and her boyfriend just telling her to 'get over it').

    Nat, as Hazel said bullet points may help? I've found that writing things down (even if I don't end up sending it to anyone) can help me sort things out in my head. Not in a 'I suddenly get better' way, but just they can help me realise what the problems are.

    Thanks yeah my ex of 12 years never really understood my depression and whilst he could sometimes show sympathy he very often took advantage of the situation and my illness to manipulate me in very sneaky ways.

    I'm really drunk right now, but I'm currently thinking that maybe hating myself is stupid? I can't exactly change who I am and I've hardly turned out badly, so maybe I could learn to accept myself for who I am and be happy with myself for once?

    Agree with the ladies above. It may be an idea to type up/print/draw the following and hang it above your bed/desk:

    "Hating myself is stupid, I can't change who I am. I have turned out well so I will learn to accept and be happy with myself whenever I can"

    Piercings: 6 lobes, 2 12mm stretched lobes, 4 helices, 3 tragus, daith, 2 nostril, 2.4mm VCH, 2.4mm daith

    coinslot ear cartilage removal, 5mm conch punch
    Cosmetic Modifications: Scar removal x7, semi permanent eyebrows, semi permanent eyeliner, semi permanent lipstick, lip dermal filler, botox
    Retired Piercings: 3 nipple, tongue, 4 philtrum, 4 eyebrow, 2 outer labia, VCH, 1 lobe, rook, nostril, 3 nape MDs, 2 wrist MDs, septum, 3 upper conch, conch, 5 helices
