    I have had a good offer to sell my business, but I don't trust them.

    I'm 50 years old and don't know what to do.

    What would you do?
    It's impossible to say without knowing more of your personal circumstances. Sometimes the absence of working and social interaction can make depression worse , but there is a danger of running the business down and losing any value in it if your personal life problems stray in to your business life.

    To be honest I'm not good on the personal / medical side but if you wanted to PM me about the offer you have had to sell, I have plenty of experience and knowledge in buying and selling businesses and could give it the once over and offer you some tips on how to protect yourself from people you don't trust should you decide to go down that route.

    i think it would be a struggle for none to advise on such limited info. No one within the family you can talk to?

    I took anti depressants for a very long time. Never thought I would be free of them. Tried a few times but need up back on them. Then one day it just felt right to move on. Look at it another way, does it matter that you take them if they help?

    People need to do what they need to do. No one has a life that matches someone else's. Do what makes you happy, not what you think is right. For now though, take the pills they serve a purpose for many.

    Whatever you do though. Don't think you are alone or can't talk. There is always another way and always someone who will listen if you reach out

    Well said.

    I think the best thing to remember is that it's not just yourself feeling this way. Loads of people do. My GP once told me one in three of his patients were taking anti depressants. So there's a third out there in the same boat.

    Talk about it, if not to immediate friends/family on here, anonymous. There's always others who know and understand how you feel.

    Genuine question.............I can really see and understand the benefits of " opening up " and it's marvelous that there are people around that are prepared to listen and help................ but what if you are an introvert sort of person ? Perhaps naturally or as a consequence of your illness. I can also see some people really struggling with this although what the alternative is I really don't know.....

    I suppose that's why places like this are so good. You can open up about anything and still remain anonymous. If you can't talk to people face to face then ask a question here. Or send a pm to someone who has had a similar time.

    It does help.
