Long time lurker on this particular thread.

Have probably had stages of mild depression from time to time, generally brought about by failed relationships and comparing myself against those in my peer group.  I found that reading self-help books has helped my confidence and taught me to 'live in the moment', whilst I usually avoid/unfollow pages on Facebook and the like which would just put you in a bad mood (some of those Belfast Live and Belfast Telegraph articles are just toxic).

Thankfully I'm pretty positive at the moment and I'm now able to identify when I take a turn and how to manage it.

It must be a tough enough time when you know it is coming but great that you can tell what to do now.

My colleague at work recently got married to this guy - fascinating story and one where talking to the GP really seemed to help.
