    Hello All, you can call me Dak!

    Depression & Anxiety is a horrible thing to go through, and sometimes just talking to someone can make you feel a lot better getting your worries and stress of your chest.
    I'm using this thread to get people who are down and going through stuff to reach out to a random and have a chat.

    So please don't hesitate if you want a chat about anything send me a message and we will have a chat. Having an ear and a shoulder sometimes can make you feel amazing!

    Be safe all
    Dak over and out =)

    It's actually very tough time every where. Besides CoVid some or the other person is suffering so other problem. I just want to say. Support each other in whatever why possible. Call friend and family, find some hobby. And please stay away from social media and TV. Those people are only spreading fear in everyone's heart. 

    Stay at home. Only step out when in very necessary and wear a mask. And get vaccinated ASAP.

    Mental health really is something that needs to stop being so stigmatised and actually spoken about. 

    Sadly, shortly before the 2nd UK lockdown, a guy we knew took his own life. He felt as if he was a failure for a long time and somehow felt this was the only option. He left his partner and 3 year old daughter. It came as a shock, especially as we had only seen him a few days prior. We started a fundraising campaign where half the money was used for mental health awareness charities and the other half as a trust fund for his daughter when she comes of age.

    At the beginning of the 3rd lockdown, another guy who we knew - and was often in the gym, always smiling etc... sadly took his own life too. A fundraiser was done in his memory too.

    An initiative was launched to actually get speaking about this, and believe it or not, over another 20 people came out saying that they were experiencing suicidal thoughts and didn't know what to do. It makes you think, how must someone feel if they think this is the only way out? A good friend of mine sent me something personal to him , a challenge coin from his military days - "Do Not Give In To The War Within" - this is to constantly remind him, me, and help others to realise this!

    Now here's the scary thing that someone we helped has told us, directly from a mental health clinic - the most common group of people that needed the help were males aged between 27 and 35, and usually with a very active lifestyle that got impacted by the lockdowns.

    There is a saying - "It's okay to not be okay" - but please actually understand this and know to apply it, and more importantly, get talking to someone you fully trust or even some sort of professional.

    Dudes don't know me from a bar of soap, so if anyone needs a chat, reach out.

    About 7 months ago I was ready to pull the trigger myself, had written out letters to my ex-wife, 3 year old son and my mother.
    my stress was through the roof with work and home life balance being completely out of wack, I was a lucky person who managed to keep working through the major Covid lockdowns within Australia, but that just made things worse.

    Truely, if you ever feel low, or just want to talk sh*t with someone who wouldn't know you on the street, reach out.

    wow felt a failure but he had wife kids a continuation of his genetics which is basically the only reason to existance when you think on it which makes him genetically a success that he carried on his line, and had friends too. and he thought he was a failure? damn man.... i guess even getting friends, a partner, kids and all that doesnt change a thing then. if you still feel a failure with all that then theres no hope at all.

    most would love to be that much a failure, i myself have no friends, social life, still live with parents at 31, no job, no future, never had a partner, no continuation of my line/kid. no chance of anything ever changing. your mate to me was not a failure, he is what id have called a unattainable success, with things that to me are impossible to ever get.

    Here's another natural (reference to Imagine Dragon's song) here. I have bipolar disorder, my advices, starting from the most important, are; 

    Sleep right, eat well, reduce your overall stress by all means if it's effecting your life, do sports especially on manic periods, regularly see your family&friends 'cuz they can tell you things that you don't notice and also you can express yourself better to them.

    It's not the end of the world, one can learn to live with it and that's what I do :)
