    Martin, really pleased your back home and you have come to no harm, but do seek help some professional help so that you can deal with the issues you are facing, your first step should be your gp. Good luck and do stay in touch with us all.

    Got an appointment at an insane asylum tomorrow. For a chat, might get sectioned. The cake wasnt that nice to dry.

    Hello Martin,

    I am glad you are still talking with us. The term you used is long outdated. The place that has the staff to help you is now called a Centre for Mental Health. But you know that really.

    Please keep us updated on your progress.

    With best wishes,

    Amber

    Hello Martin, please do remember there is nothing to be ashamed of because you have depression or mental health problems. If you are offered a bed please do accept it, then hopefully you can have all the help you need. Most Importantly we need you safe and well.

    Hi Martin80, Nothing to do with diabetes, but I had a crisis 25 years ago, I thought I was normal, although I knew I was depressed.

    Sometimes when your depressed even the very dark places make sense to ones self, but people looking on can see irrational behavior.

    That's what happened to me my Doc suggested I went just to have a chat with a Psychologist.

    When I had the chat, I volunteered for treatment and went into hospital without being sectioned, just got depression drugs & a weekly discussion, spent about 4/6 weeks there, cannot remember now, I discharged myself.

    It was the best thing I ever did and have never been in the dark places since, or had any further medication for depression since then.

    I would take the opportunity if it's offered.

    I think we need to be a bit careful about using terms like psychotic.
    Only the doctors can really diagnose from what Martin says and does. And of course, serious depression can bring out psychotic symptoms.

    Good on you Martin. I'm sure you'll find the services (whatever they're called wherever you are) that will be offered to you will be helpful.

    Best wishes,

    Jane.

    yes, he has been to hospital and is going a health facility today, that he referred to as an insane asylum. I can't see a problem in reassuring him that he does't sound off with the fairies psychotic by the sound of it to me.

    If this was the case, he wouldn't have been released from the hospital he attended.

    Where i am forever grateful for all the kind words and helpful advise.

    Is it wrong for me to not want to feel better? I dont want to be cheerful and laughing and joking.

    I just dont know wot to do anymore im in a dark pit and the floor is going down deeper as time goes on. Not down just dont know where to turn.
