Hi all - I'm also new to this so bear with me...I've had depression on and off now for over 10 years. I have previously sought help and am on Sertraline (50mg). However, I've really been struggling to find a solution that works. The medication initially took the edge off but I know I need longer term CBT and support. The problem is that I've tried the NHS and the waiting list is too long and the private ones are extortionate - so I've avoided all help for a while as i just don't have the energy/motivation to find a solution long term. Its frustrating as I just feel I could do so much more with my life if I could just get out of this fog. I wondered if anyone has any good tips in terms of what really works and whether it really is worth spending money on private help. I'm trying to do all the other things right - I exercise a lot, I'm doing yoga and 'trying' to be as sociable as I can be but its all just too much like hard work and I'm scared that the rest of my life will continue like this.
