hello there!!

Postby Taffy » Wed Apr 07, 2010 9:16 am

Hi everybody, good to be here!

I have suffered from depression for many years...longer than I care to remember!!
I have a dx of Bipolar2/Borderline.
My career as a primary school teacher ended due to mental illness in 1991, and I had to take early retirement.
I am coming up for 57!! :(
I am under the care of my local community mental health team at the moment....
I enjoy music of most types...it usually helps lift my mood.
I have a one year old border terrier named Harri..he keeps me going!

Thanks for reading!

Hi Taffy! Just a hello to you & welcome.... :D I hope you will look around the forum & post if you feel like it.

There's a lot here, so just dive in!

I'm not exactly digging myself out of the hole but creating a tunnel to get out another way. Throwing dirt from one end of the pit to the other isn't going to get me anywhere. Instead, I'll create my own path.

Hi Taffy - welcome to the forum. I also had to take early retirement from my job due to illness. There are lots of supportive and caring people here and I hope you decide to post a bit.

Hi Taffy - I'm older too (65) and had to quit work a long time ago due to depression and fibromyalgia. Coming here has been very helpful to me and I hope it will be for you Glad you're here.
