I tried out a main stream mental health charity’s forum over three or four days...........
I have had a bit of a rough week, which resulted in the usual cycle for me.
I think a combination of getting worked up about seeing the psychiatrist, a bit of a panic about a family member, trying out a mental health forum for the first time and the time of year; brought on a bout where I mentally exploded, (perhaps imploded?) with a Blog rant, which I have now deleted.

It’s been a difficult and different week, the majority of which I have slept through; save for visits to the loo and drinking squash – I have learnt my lesson about dehydration and headaches!
I know I am down and I know that awaiting the outcome of my ESA medical is contributing to my mood to a lesser or greater extent, but I have slept about 18 hours on and off every day this week.......
You may now know that I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis (UC) as well as Anxiety and Depression.
I have been thinking more about the link between my Ulcerative Colitis and my Anxiety:
For me the main challenge of Ulcerative Colitis, other than the discomfort, 10 plus visits to the loo every day and during an attack, bleeding, bloating, tiredness and back ache, is lack of bowel control.
