So I'm a 20 year old student. I have anxiety and depression. It's been pretty severe the past few months. I've been going to acute day hospital, but it hasn't made anything better. I take mirtazapine, propanolol and amisulpride, but they only take the edge off a bit.
I've been feeling pretty hopeless. I don't think things will get better. I took an overdose a week ago but it wasn't enough to do much. I still feel suicidal.
I had a chat with my care coordinator today and she pretty much told me I need to actually try to get better (because it's got to the stage where I can't be bothered to try anymore). I'm just finding this hard, because I can't imagine things getting better.
Part of the anxiety I really struggle with is feeling sick, and this stops me eating properly. This normally gets worse when I go home, and especially also at Christmas when I'm expected to be around lots of people and eat lots of food. I was wondering how people cope at Christmas? Does anyone else have these problems?
Thanks for listening.
