X 100. Going through a little bout of something myself at the moment.  Undiagnosed, but I know something is not right. Getting the wife involved and getting it off my chest has helped.  Yesterday and today have not been great. Next step will be some professional help.  Something us blokes aren't great at.
Cheers,  Mike.

No, we're not :'(, but it's something you've got to do, & been there, done that & it helped immensely!

I had cognitive behaviour therapy about a dozen years ago and it helped me enormously.

It's a strange thing our mind. It is an amazing part of our body but then it can throw a curve ball. Your mind will bring you so much joy and that feeling brilliant times and yet it can make you feel down. You may not know why and can not think of what happened, but feel down....  And then you are good again. Yep it is a very powerful thing your mind. And when shi* happens you know there are others worse off but it can take a lot to pick yourself up.....  To get your mind working how it should be.  Happy.    Kevin
