    This. I've spoken at international conferences and host a monthly event, and still each time before starting I'm jittery and all I can think is "I don't want to, let me go home."

    Once you're up there though, all that should be in your mind is the list of points you want to hit. Make your only mental goal to hit all your talking points in a clear way. You won't even realize there's an audience there; it'll just be another drill of the routine you've been practicing up to that point.

    * torture they are at the start. Doing the wim Hoff breathing before the cold showers then when you come out, it's * up the change in mood one has. It's like night and day! If done correctly, no one will feel like * after them. Having the balls to do it a few times a day or every day takes some going though because ones mind is subconsciously telling you to not even get into the shower because of the instant shock to the system haha

    Been on Sertraline now for 3 months after finally admitting my inability to deal with this thing we call life while actually being human to my nearest and dearest. At times it’s a blessing. At times a lobotomy. * the international break.
    Let any friends you have that take the time to give a *, in. Most run for the hills. I may have done that in the past also but never again.

    I've not been going to work and am likely looking at losing my job. This is not a sad or frantic post, more like * it. Going further down the hole. Cant afford my meds. Noticing the difference.
    Got to think ahead though. It is extremely hard to find structure. CBT finally in January which i am optimistic about. It will take hard work and honesty.

    Hope it all works out mate.
    And if there is one thing I can say about this thread and those who care to share and check in on it.....they are a greater help than you can imagine.

    Hopefully you can take some strength knowing you have some help coming in January. CBT can be a real help. You might also get some benefit from trying mindfulness practice: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stress-anxiety-depression/mindfulness/
