    As I remember we started our ordeals around the same time. I'm definitely hitting lower now. I felt better for a few days somewhere in the middle, but steady decline now. I hope you get answers and start feeling better soon.

    Hi Richard 

    Im in the UK  I was very lucky my gp referred me to psych at the begining of March and I have an appointment for 30/3/2016,but I think the wait is usually around 6 weeks.

    Dont suffer in silence if you are in a dark place go back to your gp and tell them your thoughts

    Stay strong and good luckbiggrin
