I've been reading all the old posts and have been really helped by all your experiences. I've been feeling low for so long I've forgotten what it feels like to be really happy. Most of the time I function OK and didn't even realise I was depressed, just thought it was stress and pressure of life etc.
Anyway I went to the doctors again today and I've been prescribed Fluoxetine and told to take a month off work - now there's a fabulous silver lining!!
After reading all your posts lots of you mention no alcohol - but I love my real ale! I don't drink to excessive amounts - usually one or one and a half pints is my limit and that only a couple of times a week so will this be OK to keep doing? I really enjoy going to the pub and think I would be much worse if I gave up doing that. Last time I had depression I was on a different brand and the beer made no difference then.
Keep smiling everyone. I know from experience life does get better but sometimes those brain chemicals just get in the way of thinking straight. :cheers:
