This thread is a continuation of THIS THREAD

Clinical depression is a recognised condition that affects people in many different ways often altering the sufferers personality and ability to function in a 'normal' manner. It can affect thinking, judgement, and social behaviour in ways that cause serious problems and embarrassment.

If this support thread on MSE is to continue it must be remembered that not all posters on this thread will always be able to express their feelings in a nice, sociable way.

If you find the posts of any particular member difficult to deal with then the ignore facility is available. Just as one person may not be in a place where they can post 'nicely', another may not be in a place where they are able to read said posts.

    Morning all

    Tiff, agree with the thread name change:T

    Had a lovely (not) surprise this morning when yet another letter arrived telling me I have a benefit overpayment from last year. It's right, having worked it out, it's just yet another to deal with, considering I informed all the correct agencies when OH moved in. I guess these things take a little time to get 'on the system' as it were.

    Coupled with that, we're still in a state of uncertainty over OH's job. He should have found out for definite yesterday whether he's keeping his job or being made redundant, but although it seems two colleagues got 'the letter', there's still some rule regarding the scoring system they have used which means the boss has to wait another 48 hours :D before announcing officially.

    So here we are two weeks on, *still* in a state of limbo, now with three letters of overpayments from last year which need dealing with but I can't until we know if OH is working or not, and thus how much we can afford to repay. Luckily, I have been very good in keeping on top of these and keeping the relevant agencies informed, so it's a matter of waiting until Monday now and then we can deal with each one.

    I'm going to deal with today in the same way I do when I have some time on my hands - cleaning. DDs are with their dad and OH is out doing some work for a friend. I slept on the sofa so I'm going to clean the kitchen before finally managing to make it upstairs (LOL) and have a nice, invigorating shower - to wake me up considering I was sat watching Emmerdale omnibus at 5am (ish?) this morning and feeling massively pregnant and not wanting to lie in bed yet another night not sleeping.

    Will catch up later with everyone xxx

    Tiff - pat on the back for you for starting a new thread.

    I'm totally at a loss to understand how this instruction can be followed. It's a bit like having a pregnancy thread and instructing posters not to discuss the fact that they're pregnant.
