    So, so pleased to hear from you Scott although I'm so sorry about the lows that you found yourself in at the weekend. Really grateful to your friend who was there for you in your time of need and that you're starting to feel human again.

    Keep talking, keep seeing your friends and keep those meds on the go and hopefully that combination will help you get back to being yourself again. We're all hear to lend an ear if you ever need it!

    SCOTT!! I can't believe you got that low that's awful. Things always get better and please remember that buddy.

    You shouldn't give a damn about the ex's in all honesty, focus on getting yourself straight and the best version of you, once you get there (which you absolutely will do), all of your relationships will work out much better. I think stop introducing new women into your life until you are 100%

    I'm a total j*erk to women you need to learn from me haha.

    Drop me a PM if you want my mobile number mate.

    Forget women for the time being , think only of yourself . Try and get your driving test passed , this will open up more ways to get out. Plus it might help you get another job if you wanted. I think you need to move forward rather than keep looking back . This is hard I know I have experience of this !

    Glad to hear you are doing surveys .

    Have a better day .

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Don't feel stupid Scott - it's one of those things and the fact that you're looking back at it with regret already is a positive thing. It shows that it was a mistake and that you're already improving in your state of mind. Just keep at it

    You sound positive today - enjoy your work outs!

    My body is completely aching after kettlebells then yoga on Wednesday then a HIIT workout and abs class last night...it hurts to sit, to stand...it just all hurts!

    Scott I’m so sorry to hear about what you’ve been through but you sound so much better now.

    As the others have said - keep training and taking your meds - although from your last post I gather that you didn’t take on board camz and Cumbria’s rather good advice of laying off the women for now..........

    Have a great weekend.

    Keep your chin up and try to do things that are good for you - fresh air, working out, talking to friends.

    Did you get anywhere eventually with the GP?

    Thinking of you and wishing you a speedy return to where you want to be.

    Haha re gp no it was just a prescription for meds and bog off and get on with it. I am back on meds but its really slow.

    I havent trained since last week but i am going after work ie 8am today. I am trying to get myself sorted but at the minute its not easy.I am smoking again like a chimney.

    Please please dont think my mood issues was purely down to lasses etc it was a factor but not everything. See next paragraph.

    I was out with my best mate on monday afternoon for a walk and spilled my guts to her, a few things have happened lately that have dropped me to my knees. An old friend got in touch who i fell out with well before my son was born about 18 years ago. We had fallen out basically because i am sorry to admit this but i kicked the sxxt outta him when i found out he was cheating with my ex partner behind my back.

    We met for a coffee on friday in the afternoon and sunday afternoon but after this i made the decision he was well not someone who had changed.

    He was quite a big factor in lots of other thing going to the dogs, ie a relationship breakdown, a breakdown of relations with my parents, falling out with mutual friends, and alot of stress that came as a result of this. People who know me from my huskyrunner user name will know i have nothing to do with my parents. I wont go into the full specifics but in short when i split with my sons mam they kicked me out, took my ex's side and made my life hell for about 4-5 years on and off. They supported her and were of the opinion you stay with your partner come hell or high water if a kids involved. I am extremely stubborn my mam is a major league control freak, when i said basically stuff you and left they were not bothered but a year or two later my ex told my parents where to go. As a result i was expected to let them see my son through me i said no so basically they caused me so so much hassle. You dont kick someone out then expect in the next breath for them to forgive. They caused me so many problems from here going forward as i wanted nothing to do with either. ie arsey voicemails, texts, emails, try to cause me issues at work, giving new partners grief, randomly turning up at my work etc etc etc

    I dont know if people will understand this but a lot stuff came to the surface that i had locked away and not dealt with. Net result on monday gone it happening nearly again, i called my best mate and talked everything though we spent 5 hours talking and i am nearly okay again. I just need to pack a few things in, ciggys and women lol.

    You are having a rough time at the moment. Sometimes though no matter how hard it is , you have to leave the past behind and move forward. You seemed to be doing really well after you went back to work last year. Your son is still in your life which is brilliant, family can be a nightmare sometimes.

    It's difficult to comment sometimes on your situation as I have never been in it , but hope when you read mine and other peoples we help somewhat.

    We are cyber friends , but we are always here .

    Enjoy the gym, are you getting the bike out soon ?

    Gosh Scott, it really sounds like a tough time all round, but in a way it might be good that you met that ex-friend and a lot of the repressed stuff was brought up. It was likely to boil up at some point, so may as well be now?

    RE: the GP, I'm glad you got a script, but i wonder if you should go back and try to see another GP to talk through how best to deal with your feelings? My mum has had mental health issues over the last 20 years and the only reason that she got through it was through finding a supportive GP in her practice who really listened and did his best to help. She saw a counsellor who helped with some of her childhood issues and she went for CBT for anxiety, as well as medication and family support. I suppose what I'm getting at is that a GP isn't just there for meds so if you're able to identify a really good GP in your practice, it might make all the difference to the support you receive.

    Hope you're being kind to yourself.
