This is my first attempt at a blog, so bear with me!

I am an ordinary, unremarkable person, diagnosed with mild to moderate depression 8 years ago. But I seem to have always suffered from mood swings and a sort of melancholia, low self-esteem, worrying a lot about things in general, never feeling good enough or clever enough, for most of my adult life.

I have no answers, solutions, suggestions of things that might help, to offer.

The first Nurse Practitioner I saw suggested I find something online to rate my mood, hence I joined Moodscope. That was May 2015, I find it helpful, a way to monitor my ups and downs, to be part of an online community as it were. I did try CBT but it just wasn't for me, maybe I'm in the minority, I'm sure it helps a lot of people.

I had to cope with a bereavement last year, something that you never get over, just learn to live with I feel. I'm sure some people can overcome difficulties and hard times better than others. Losing mum was hard, even though as she had Alzheimers she was lost to us already.

Anyway,Thanks for sticking with me and taking the time to read this.
