    Depression

    There was a similarly named thread a little while back but it didnt feel the appropriate place for this post (if you do a search you'll see why!) I have toyed with posting on here about this on and off over the past few months but always decided against it until now...and even as I write this I'm wondering if I'm doing the right thing. It is not about sympathy. I was diagnosed with depression a few months ago. This is my first experience of this illness and I wondered what experiences others might have/have had and what has and has not worked for them with the idea that these experiences might be helpful for others. In brief, depression crept up on me towards the end of the summer and was at its worst during August. I am so grateful to 'this place' for the distraction and company during that time when I hardly went out (except for when I went out on my bike...something, strangely, I managed to keep up) Things picked up a bit after that and in strange circumstances seemed to sort themselves out almost overnight at the beginning of October. In the weeks after that I thought I had put it behind me and then at the beginning of the month I began to feel it creeping back and this has escalated over the past week or so. I think I know some of the reasons for the onset of my depression in the first place but I cannot explain why I have had this second dip (a double dip depression I am describing it in my head) which only seems to add to the upset I feel. Like many others, when I first began to feel low I kept things to myself but in the end couldnt keep it in any longer and spoke to family and friends. I cant tell you how supportive they have been and how pleased they have been to see me getting better.......and now that I am feeling things falling apart again I just feel so awful admitting this to myself and to all those lovely people who have looked after me. I have seen my GP this week and I have started some antidepressant medication but I just wanted to hear if anyone else has had any similar experiences or any advice to offer me or others about what has/has not worked for them/people they know Thanks

    The Foodie thread

    I would like a frying pan I can put in the oven. Any recommendations?
  3. I’m currently addicted to Gold Digger. I’m sure you lot’d hate it

    any financial/mortgage advisers on here?

    Liz! Fancy seeing you here!
  5. Really? They are most definitely served with beef. Its only reading on here that I have discovered that people eat them with other meat (toad in the hole aside). What a sheltered life I have lived

    any financial/mortgage advisers on here?

    Are you happy where you're living? An alternative might be to consider obtaining an address (eg renting somewhere for as long as required) in your chosen catchment area.
  7. Anyone know what happened to Bjornebye? CT? Just noticed that he is now marked as a Registered User. Did I miss something?

    Comfort food

    I’ve never heard Scots in Scotland referring to themselves or any other Scot as ‘jock’. It always feels like a word used by others/English people. It always feels a bit dismissive

    Comfort food

    You made that up, didn’t you? But the drawer thing is true. I first heard of it from my friend’s dad. A big batch would be made and the leftovers put in the drawer and sliced up as required

    I would suspect not

    Did he keep it in a drawer? For the uninitiated, it really is a thing

    Comfort food

    Or perhaps even more specifically, puddings are described as desserts when you’re eating out?

    Comfort food

    There is in my head

    Try launching that into the ‘dinner’ and ‘tea’ debate

    Comfort food

    Repped although I think that is definitely more ‘pudding’ than ‘dessert’

    The GF Savoury Pie Poll

    That sounds great. I fancy the idea of doing a cooking course of some kind

    The GF Savoury Pie Poll

    That would be amazing!

    The GF Savoury Pie Poll

    Does that mean you have a recipe?
  19. Champ

    Comfort food

    No, not at all. Of course I’ve googled it but I’d love to get a recipe from someone who makes it themselves

    Comfort food

    I need science, Arthur. Science. Quantities and cooking times. The pie I’m talking doesn’t have gravy. You eat it with pickled cabbage

    Comfort food

    Does anyone have a recipe for meat and potato pie? Had some over the weekend on a trip to Lytham. The very definition of comfort food. I want to make my own

    The Wire

    I wasn’t fussy where it went I just wanted to share what I was listening to. And thanks for the heads up about the 6Music programme

    Wendell Pierce on Desert Island Discs. I’d read him saying how much he’d enjoyed doing it and it absolutely comes across
