No problem! Despite being a sexy mother fucker, a highly intelligent comedy genius, with a massive dong and a hot Mrs, I still suffer mild to moderate depression. 

 

Shit works!

One thing which can help.

Change.

Change your circumstances, situation, direction, get a new look look, haircut, shoes because when you are down you stare at your shoes alot.

Close down, move away, start afresh, get shot of toxic relationships, downsize, move dead in the water kit, old ideas, staff who don't make your life easy.

 Change.

It was rather traumatic and nearly killed me but I'm through the otherside now.

Lots of good advice on this thread, 

100% agree with getting rid of toxic people that In in your life, was told that where possible surround yourself with positive people, positively breeds positivity.

I honestly think depression can be entirely biological though. Like the brain isn't wired properly or that you are lacking a vital mineral. 

 

i agree lifestyle/ friends etc play a  part but I've been blue before for no reason whatsoever. A good nutritionist is a good place to start.

Nearly a year on from my previous post and things are a lot better.

Unfortunately my relationship did break down, due to treating my ex as a crutch to hold myself up during the bad times. This was what kickstarted my counselling sessions once a week which I have always previously dismissed and failed to understand the importance. They have immensely helped me and I recommend them to any person in a similar situation where they are struggling to cope by them self. Taken up running, get some podcasts on the go and out the door to completely switch off from trees and focus on myself.

troublesome/stressful subbies I got rid of, any ongoing hidden issues with staff or admin etc were corrected or dealt with. I knew that things had to change in order for me to carry on running this business. 

 I am no longer stressed daily, in fact I am so relaxed that I fail to book work in and organise basic things.... but I am enjoying the arb industry again and looking forward to a busy winter!

I think many of us are climbers (I know I am) quitting climbing and doing business stuff would drive me potty.

 

I often feel fed up and demotivated, but if I get out the house and up a tree I soon feel great.

I relate to this 100% Is there any solution than just been up a tree every day ? I've had the day off today instead of enjoying the day I just cant help feeling if I was working I'd be in a better mood
