I'm lonely and looking for some friends that can relate to what i am going through. We can talk about absolutely anything... our problems, hopes for the future, music, politics, animals, work, family etc. This group is about finding people who are on the same wavelength as you
Just looking to chat with fellow sufferers in the local area
Hi, I was looking for groups in my local area and could not seem to any, however there seem to be groups for other places. I thought it would be a good idea to start one, so people can make new connections in there local area.
Anyone like me who lives in Hull and would like to meet new people and make genuine friends. Join here for a chat and maybe we can meet up in town for coffee or arrange a group activity.
We all go through spells of feeling down, but when you're depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days. Some people still think that depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They're wrong. Depression is a real illness with real symptoms, and it's not a sign of weakness or something you can "snap out of" by "pulling yourself together". The good news is that with the right treatment and support, most people can make a full recovery.
