    On the whole, positive. Every cloud has a silver lining

    For example, it was devastating when my son was born with serious and multiple disabilities. However, he survived his first four operations that began when he was nine hours old, and he has survived further health issues since. My little man is a happy and contented young man who is 21 tomorrow

    If I didn't view life and its events as positive, I would be an absolute wreck. That's not good for me or my family. Life is for living - we should embrace it! It also helps to keep my depression at bay, which can only be a good thing

    What they may not realise is that behind the face of every 'clown' is a person with the same issues as everybody else. Laughing and smiling at stupid and puerile things and ideas does somehow help me to stay (generally) both sane and within society's accepted norms. People with MH issues 'cope' in different ways than a person without the MH issues might.

    People sometimes shy away if they realise that a person has MH issues (be they depression or something else). That in turn can push the person further 'in'. It can be a seemingly vicious circle.

    Today hasn't been good btw - hence the reason for probably too much information.

    I do have bad days - don't get me wrong, I'm not positive all of the time. I'm great at wearing a mask though. Everyone thinks that I manage really well, but they don't see what is going on inside. I do understand. I have to look at things in a positive manner though, otherwise I wouldn't cope with everything that life has thrown at me.

    I hope that tomorrow is a better day Sleazy. Sending you virtual hugs (hope that Mrs. Sleazy doesn't mind). For what it's worth, I think that you are one of the loveliest posters on here x

    Why.
    Thread title " How would you describe yourself?"
    Poll title "How would you describe your general demeanour?

    If the former, leggy.
    If the latter, happy go lucky.
