Glad to hear your doing ok. It's always a little tough when you first come from the clinic, you've left a really safe supportive environment thats set up to aid people
who are going through all kinds of depression, anxiety and associated ilness.
How are you going with your medications? Have they changed or are they the same?
It must be tough for you in Kalgoorlie being away from your friends and family, are you working Nat, or are you not quite ready for that yet? Being unemployed can also make you feel down, but I think anyone who is unemployed feels that way, I know I do. Do you have any girlfiends in Kal? I'm sure there would be a gym or healthclub there, maybe you could consider doing something like that that would help you physically and mentally, plus it kind of forces you to interact, maybe swimming or something just to start getting yourself out and about. You know I'm sure there are other women in your situation there, followed your man out there for work, and maybe they miss their friends and family from wherever they came from.
Have a look around communityboard notices, check out the library see what groups/clubs that are available in town, you may find something of interest.
Don't make any rash decisions about your marriage whilst you are still in the grips of deep depression. Some men (and women) just have no concept of depression because they have never experienced it, and find it very difficult to relate to it, sometimes it's just a“man” thing. Maybe you need a break, are you able to go spend some time in Perth with family or friends? Sometimes, you just need to remove yourself from the situation, in order to see it with more clarity. I've got your email address now..so will flick you an email if you want to chat privately. Your only 26 Nat you have your entire life before you and it will get better, if you need to change what's not making you happy, then do it, but take the time, to think about it before you act. I'm doing my bossy older woman thing now lol sorry, take care Nat, Kate
