    Excellent news mate, I told you that it comes eventually. Keep it up, especially the gym because that's the biggest contributing factor to feeling positive.
    Yeah definitely. Gunsforlife.

    Does this mean we can continue that co-op session in Bloodborne now, where hopefully a lift won't kill me off?

    This is good news Addy. Regarding the gym it helps if you follow the famous mantra of the wise one. Follow your dreams, you can reach your goals I'm living proof. Beefcake, beefcake.

    Off to my drug and alcohol counseling tomorrow, apparently I got to show I'm willing to participate and do it for a few weeks before the mental health team will give me a chance for a appointment. I should add I consume 2 - 4 units of alcohol a month and stopped smoking any weed once they told me its a problem. The public inquest for the girl I lived with is the first week of August and I'm not doing well at all. I even spoke to a relative of mine who works for the mental health team and said I dont know where my head will be after the inquest. My family and friends say its great I'm sorting my house and shed out and throwing anything I dont need away, I got no plans honestly but I know I wont be a good state of mind and if I'm to go then it'll be easier on them to have a minimum to do before selling my house.

    Sorry for the downer, I'll be ok hopefully.

    I don't think you need to apologise for downers in here! How did the counseling session go?

    @KD All the best for the session. It can be hard to open up at first, but will hopefully help you out.

    Well, just got fired today. Mum was killed 2 years ago, my gf dumped me 2 months after that, I was face to face with my mother's murderer half a year ago and now this.

    It seems to me that it would be abnormal for you not to feel really, really bad after experiencing these things. I'm sorry that happened to your mother. You've had to deal with two very difficult experiences and one traumatic one. Give yourself a break.

    Not having a great day. It's my daughters birthday tomorrow (youngest one turns 4) and she's obviously oblivious to it and it's just another day to her. You'd think I'd be used to it now but all this autism shit gets me down with stuff like this. Just feeling sorry for myself I guess.

    Peace out folks.

    Sorry to hear that. I hope your mood improves, and it is hard to deal with situations like this even if things are going well.

    Cheers. I'm sure I'll be ok tomorrow. Just have to go with the flow with these highs and lows.

    Can I take this opportunity to give a massive hug and thanks to user @jono62 for messaging me on discord out of the blue and gifting me a 12 month sub for psn. Totally unexpected and I'm overwhelmed at such a gesture. Particularly as I'm a bit of twat at times to some good people. Apologies for that.

    I needed to get something off my chest and this seems as good a place as any. Not as serious as what some of you are going through, I wish you all well.

    Was fired about a month and a half ago. Had a awful year. Two deaths in the family, other family health issues and my mental health took a turn. Had mutliple instances of time off and unfortunatly got to a point where they decided, after a meeting, to fire me. Appealed but was rejected. Is what it is in that regard.

    I've never been fired before and i'm terrified about how to answer the question in interviews of "why did you leave". My old jobs hr department have said they will put dismissed as part of the reference. Just feeling pretty low and keep having big pangs of sadness. 32 years old nearly and lived with my parents for 5 years after moving back.

    Hopefully things will pick up. I'm determinned to start exercising tomorrow as I don't want to go back on meds if I can help it. Anyway sorry for waffling!

    Most companies will only confirm dates of employment. Some are more rigorous. So it may not come during at referencing.

    I think if asked at interview I would be honest and say explain the background. Just make sure you're in the right place to start a new job first. (Finances permitting!)

    I found since being open with work about the issues I was experiencing (it came to a head when I didn't turn up to work after a failed suicide attempt) that it was easier to deal with as I no longer had the pressure of trying to hide it. I've probably been lucky that my firm have been quite accommodating, but my advice is generally be honest when dealing with existing or potential future employers.
