    Thanks guys I do appreciate it.... I find friends dont know how to cope with it and can even be dismissive of it.

    I am not in any danger of anything stupid I have way to much to live for but do find it so so strange that I know what is going on and know that I love life but the feeling is still there??????

    I dont want to go to the doctors for reasons that may sound odd to many but I have a gun licence and dont want to lose it... I enjoy hunting and feral control so this may affect that??

    I rang the help line 17 years ago when I did plan to top myself and it was a massive help, I spoke to the lady for more than 2 hours and after felt this great weight lifted from me.

    I was in outback NSW and away from my wife and it was the darkest I had ever felt.. I had planned to ride my motorcycle to the railway crossing at 1.15am as I knew the train would be past and was all ready to go when I fell asleep.... funny heh!!

    It was that morning I rang for help and it was brilliant.

    I think it is as DX stated the stresses of life sometimes they mount up a bit and the normal load we can deal with day to day get too much.

    I think I am a bit run down from all thats been going on and need to eat some fruit and not drink beer, he he!!!!!

    Diet and exercise play a very important role in one's health and well being. Stay hydrated too - with water.

    Hi BA - mate you are definitely not alone in your feelings and if you ever need an "anonymous" forum mate to have a chat to give me a bell. I've PM'd you my mobile so if you ever want to offload anything on someone please give me a bell! It sounds like you know the symptoms and understand what is happening - but mate - please go and see your doctor or call Beyond Blue or the like. I'd hate to see someone on the forum suffering and not knowing there is a whole bunch of people on here who are ready to lend a shoulder or an ear or whatever you need.

    It's a strange illness. Even when you know you have everything going for you it can grab you and drag you down into some dark places.

    There's not too many of us that haven't experienced it to some degree. If you don't want to go see a Doc just yet, ring the help line again, have a chat and see how things are after that.

    Plenty of us here are willing to help, given the responses, but we're not professionals, that I know of, and whilst we may be good listeners and supportive we probably don't know the right questions to ask or the appropriate responses to give.

    At least here you can come and have a laugh and know that there are people ready and willing to help, even if it's just the offer of a cordial punch to the throat

    Take care mate!

    Believe me guys this is one place I feel good 95% of the time..... the other 5% is Winnie and Healy giving me the shits!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!

    Dont have a huge amount of mates anymore as I stopped working on motorcycles all of a sudden I did not have people around my house every weekend.

    Got told years ago you can count on one hand if you are lucky your real close mates....... this is so true!!

    Re: Depression

    As others have said, chin up mate. I think we all suffer a bit these days, and I don't think its getting better..
    I know I had a real bad stint when I up and move out at 17 years old. Moved nearly 800k from everything I knew into a new environment which was not for me.
    Sleepless nights, nearly got sacked all because I was way under my head. No friends, just my now wife which I pushed away and did things I now regret but she stuck by my.
    She seeked help for me, we got our own unit in a group of people our age (19 at this time), and basically started life again.
    Now, I still don't have many friends, got work mates, but no BFF's within 400k.
    But as I said, my now wife and 2 kids, got our house, and steady income, and the Nissan...
    So I'm not rich, not travelling the world. Im happy to have a roof over my family's head, a running car in the driveway and if there is a little cash to splash we then its a good week.

    So yea, chin up, talk about it, bounce feelings around.. and if all else fails just cuddles with the family...

    We all here for each other.
