Cheers lads.

Tried that running lark. Goosed after a mile. Too fat  :P

Strange as it may seem (and I dont know how) I have found myself more relaxed simply because I have an appointment in March and there may be something that can be done.

As the saying goes.....the longest journey starts with the smallest step. Well done on getting out, keep it going....I'm 17 stone so no lightweight 😜. I regularly do 5k now so hope for us all.....and always feel a lot better after it. Keep talking👍

If you can't run, walk. Pick up the pace slightly each time, try to sprinkle in a few steps of running to get you going. Running's tough, it hurts the first few times you do it, but you can settle into it eventually. Even when I'm in shape and I've been training, I still find the first mile tough as hell until I settle into my stride.

You know what's great for the auld head, a dog... Their attention is
 unconditional. I'm typing this sitting in a dark empty stand at the local football field as the dog potters about the seats. I value this walk every day, keeps me sane 😀 soon time to toddle home

I read the story of Laura Burns in the paper last week, a young nurse who passed last week. 32 years old. Totally freaked me out, i used to hurl against her husband and knew him through work also.

Unreal, scary. We all have demons to fight. Keep talking folks.

Never was one for dogs but I can see the value of one for some.

I find that swimming is great for me. Gives you time to work things out, bit of head space. No phones, tv, distractions. Youíve no choice but to switch off for an hour.

Agree...my poor dog...she never talks back....always up for a walk...rain hail or snow.

Any form of exercise is great. If you find something you love doing it's even better. Running does it for me.
Certainly good to switch off for an hour or so whatever it is you like to do.

If you're not into dogs, try cats. Mine saved me a few years ago.

There's even research that says that the sound of a cat purring on your lap can lower your heart rate and help you relax. My cat is always happy to see me when I come home. I have a wife now but when I was single the cat was a godsend. It was nice to have this animal waiting for me at day's end.

Good man PJ.
Keep the head up and as the lads/ladies here have said no matter how hard it may seem talk to someone about it.
Costs nothing but definitely helps

For anyone on Facebook, get yourself on a page called "Ask Dave".

A lad of about 25 set it up some time ago, as a support for anyone feeling down, depressed or just down right P8shed off. I met the young lad out the other night while doing the once yearly festive 12 pubs and had a craic with him, great lad all together.

First Xmas in a long time and I seriously have no motivation to do anything.  Majority of mates are all married and have kids, so the nights out will be few and far between.  Trying to keep active for e.g. gym but it's hard not to have periods where you get abit 'down' during this time of year.
