It's a beautiful world.

22 Nov 2016

I have been using Moodscope since 2010 and have found it very useful and it has helped me a lot. I think the simple act of just commenting on the day and why you have a good/bad/indifferent score clarifies and puts a little bit of perspective on situations.

In 2010 when I was 65, my husband of 33 years walked out unexpectedly and that sent me into a deep decline and depression. It was so hard to face the prospect of being single at that age and the loss of a partner, family unit, a lifestyle, his family and certain friends. It would have been easier to be widowed and Lord knows I wished that upon him at the time!!!

I tried all sorts of therapies and have adapted over the last six years of being alone. He recently married the younger woman which I must say was hard to stomach but I've survived.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June and have just finished radiotherapy and consider myself lucky. It was caught early. I have good relations with my ex's family, my family and my friends have been wonderful support and generally I am ok. Life is tough but I'm getting there...thank you Moodscope...just taking time out to put my thoughts and feelings down helps a lot.

My thoughts to everyone feeling so sad and depressed is that over time, pain lessens and its a beautiful world so look after yourself, cherish life and the friends and families that you do have.

Best wishes
