    Man I adore your blog, I eagerly wait for every new post which I do for none of the other many many blogs I follow. Of course none of them combine so many of my interests so expertly as yours does aka top fashion -inc beautiful fur, feminism -loud & proud & no holding back sex discussions all told with a good sense of humour & no bullshit. Thank you so much for bringing all this goodness into my life like the cool big sister I never had. I’m so sorry to hear you have to deal with the big d it is such a fucking pain I have a sneaky feeling it’s wormed it’s way into my life too for example you mention the beautiful michael scott I think if I ever met steve carell I’d burst into tears cos the office has been a constant source of pure joy in my life that sincerely lacks that quality in quite literally every other area & thus I feel so grateful for his genius talent & pathetic that it means that much to me, lol cheerful. Anyway keep doing what you’re doing daisy I love your stuff & you’re utterly fabulous I hope one day soon you feel better x

    This is the most wonderful comment ever and I thank you so much – from the bottom of my heart – for your unbelievably kind and glorious words. I haven’t got a sister, so being a cool big sister sounds positively wonderful. And I can’t even explain to you how much I adore Steve Carell. I wish the doctor could prescribe me some of him because I’d be back on tip top form in a heartbeat! I swear to you, The Office is always open on my internet tabs and I, too, pay Dunder Mifflin a visit a few times a day. I’m so sorry to hear that you’re feeling the big D, too. I hope you start feeling brighter and happier asap. Thanks so much again, you are sensational x

    Well done you for doing this post Daisy Cakes! I think you’ve addressed it in your usual quirky way which will hopefully appeal to people reading it in a way that other stuff out there just doesn’t, and that’s important in this day and age. I still can’t believe it’s so stigmatised, but I think that may be because people use the word flippantly and think it’s just an easy cop out excuse. For those who suffer (and I really mean at times SUFFER) it kist certainly isn’t! It’s something I’m sadly not unfamiliar with myself so I feel where you’re coming from, and it’s definitely good to chat sometimes so my inbox is always available for you. My one piece of advice for now – full on Prozac is the devil. Keep fighting lovely girl xx

    Thank you, darling!! You are supportive and lovely, as always. I really hope that, if anyone stumbles upon this post, they find some solace or just feel less alone in their suffering; I’d be pleased as punch if that happened. I’m sorry to hear that you’re not unfamiliar with the woes of depression but, given the stats, I’m not surprised! I’ve heard a lot of bad things about Prozac now so I might go back to the doc and ask to be referred for counselling. In the mean time I will be sure to pop up in your inbox if I need a chat 🙂 The offer is always there for you too, m’love xxx

    Darling princess daisy. This is an honest and modern look at a condition that is as common as the cold.
    Im in no way belittling how you feel and as, I hope, you can imagine reading it made my stomach knot and my eyes fill with water.
    When I was your age, a while ago now, and I wanted to talk about my depression there was a real stigma about it. You were told to take tablets or just pull yourself together.
    I have tried everything out there and I mean everything over the 30 odd years of suffering.
    When my post natal depression made the medical profession diagnose me with bi polar and convinced me to be sterilised so I could never have another child I knew I had got as low as I could. I found my final saviour in my fantastical supportive husband and a fantastic therapist at the mental hospital.
    The reason I am sharing all this is because I feel suitably qualified to advise you to please explore all options and there are many.
    I thank you for sharing your thoughts, I am sure that you are helping more than one person.
    You are a beautiful human being.
    You know where I am xxxxxxxx
