My Journey through depression men’s health it’s ok not to be ok!

Sunday 1st July.

Up early again but managed to sleep the whole night, feel a bit unsure this morning and not sure why as I don’t really have any plans today.

Was ok most of the morning and we planned on a visit to the runway visitor centre at manchester airport, I still can manage to drive around that side of manchester as I continue to feel anxious as soon as we get anywhere near my old work area. I know eventually I will overcome this if I need to but at the moment I have absolutely no reason to drive on the m60 or m56.

There was an event on today so we decided to use our national trust cards and go to quarry bank mill which I have not been to since I was very young so was lovely to remember the different parts of it and we even went to Styal village and a walk through the woods which was lovely then an ice cream before we headed home to be greeted by Barney.

Kept busy when we got back sorted out Barney little pool which Julia ended up in and I then prepared the veg for tea. Had a snooze before the football and then enjoyed that whilst sorting out the roast chicken.

Had a relaxing evening tonight but I am starting to feel anxious about tomorrow, i know I am only volunteering but it is part of my learning to cope with returning to work which I can now say I do have plans for when I want to return to some form of work but not exactly what I may want.

Took Barney for a walk it helped me a little but not fully, I will be ok it’s just me accepting my ways till I’m fully ready for work again.

I am a genuine 32 year old man suffering with depression. I have a loving family around me and what was/is a wonderful life I just need to get back to the way I was. I am sharing my journey through depression in the hopes it helps other out there come to terms with their own issues and helps them understand it better and know they are not alone.
