Echo this, going from a 10 to a 7 is a fantastic start so it's always good to hear what you've done to get there.

Good to hear MD, keep going mate.

Out of interest, has anyone heard from GM and Mick lately? Hope those two are OK, I think about them a lot!

GM was on quite recently and he's on Instagram a lot. Mick on the other hand has vanished.

Good to hear (I must have missed his posts) and not so good to hear RE Mick, hope wherever he is he’s good. He’s probably in Leazes Mag/NE5’s basement chained up!

Hey, sorry, been driving a lot, so haven’t been on here. Thanks for the message dokko and everyone else I really appreciate it. I’m doing better, still have an unending feeling of doom and that my life is not worth living but the intensity is down from 10 to 7. I have counseling on Monday, so that’s good. Appreciate everyone’s support it really does help when you are feeling awful

Hope you're alright man. Echo the posts of others, just a couple of other suggestions with CALM https://www.thecalmzone.net/ or giving the Samaritans a ring or email if you need to talk about stuff but don't feel comfortable doing it with friends/family/us

Glad to hear you've come back a bit. Like Jill said, a good start and in the right direction. Fingers crossed you get some answers from the counselling.

I was at my group therapy session tonight, 5 new starters. It's been the 4 of us for so long so it was a nice lift. One left early, her nerves got the better of her. Hard to know how to make her feel comfortable, but could tell the suffering as soon as I entered the room. Poor lass, really hope she gives it a good bash but likely not.

MD - how you doing fella, hope you got through the day and got some help that you needed.

Ignore if you (all) like but just wondering if people in here would like to meet up, go for a meal (so it’s not alcohol specific like out on the lash) chew the fat and offer support. Just a thought. :)

Canny idea, maybe a non Lockwood Cup kick-about meet up?

Something along those lines. I'm up for it if anyone fancies it :)

Thanks for the kind words everyone, it means a ton to me it honestly does. It really helps and massively helped me reduce how bad I was feeling and how worthless I felt.

Thanks a lot man. Could have easily rammed my car into a tree earlier like I could feel the pull of it. If I wasn’t scared of it, I would have. I mean I wanted to if that makes sense

I felt extremely mentally unwell this morning but somehow I've survived the day.

A slightly different slant on this. Wor lass f***ed her elbow up Christmas Eve and has been in a complete panic about everything ever since, some sort of PTSD I guess, the post-op X-rays are spectacular, so many screws. Medically she's doing brilliantly, they don't need to see her again, but mentally she's a mess. Obvs I'm trying to support her but she's up at like 0130 pacing the floor and s***. She wants to go out every day but at the same time doesn't cos she knows she'll get jostled and that f***ing hurts.

I got a referral to the trial they are running for Psilocybin for treatment resistant depression in Newcastle. I'm stoked to be honest, lot of robust research on it, and I want to get off Citalopram.

Is medical psilocybin still hallucinogenic?

The dosages are so minute that they don't cross the threshold. I should be fine, used to do like 200 back in my glory days :lol:but yeah its microdosing essentially

Amazing, how interesting.

Are you sure it's microdosing? Most of the studies I've read are using large doses as an assistant for talking therapies. These tend to be for trauma and PTSD though.

Aye it's the same compound. They're trying to make analogues with reduced hallucinogenic properties at the moment, but a lot of people think it's these effects which are part of the reason they can work so well. It's a very interesting field of study.
