    Get yourself along to your GP and ask for advice. You may be prescribed medication and that will be the start to your recovery.

      Not eating very well at all , but fresh stuff to eat then just end up throwing it out due toNO motivation to make food . Anxious about shopping too. Sleep , probably too much

      I know the feelin of being trapped its the worst feeling in the world I think!

      Since I've been like this I've not been able to work at all. With medication you always feel worse at the beginning, then you should start to feel a bit better, if not then perhaps Dr may increase your dose I think? Can you not get some sick leave from work or take hoiday? I guess at this time of year its hard to get time off, but your health is much more important.

      Xx

    Hi Lucy, 

    I know how hard it is to cope situation like you are suffering from. But if you are feel like you are struggling with day-today work; this means you need a break. You can ask your friend to roam around or pack your bags and go on a vacation for a week. Search the place where you feel relaxed. Explore yourself!! It is very important to face this situation.

      Thanks for reply dorothybaez,

      I can understand why you said to get away but I just don't have that in me , leaving the house is a trial enough in itself , work is too hard x

    Know the feeling.I'm not officially diagnosed with depression or anxiety,due to that my parents don't take me seriuously.Im currently a 3rd year radiography therapy student.I've been to a homeopath but she recommende probiotics,omega 3,b-complex supplement which i did not much success.

    Not sure maybe i also really don't like the job(finishing this year my studies).Any advice woul be much appreciated.Also my family very "old school" in the sense suck it up or jog off the depro vibe.(i was also a happy go lucky person but past 4 yrs not good at all. 

    All of the best for you .

      Thanks for reply abrie, sounds tough for you . Have you not been to GP ?

      I'm really bad right now , most of the time , we'll all of the time I'm anxious, feel I'm doing the wrong thing , struggling with everyday tasks so work is just not good . I have a child as well so don't want to let them down . Was so busy / active during the summer , close people would've described me as manic but I felt I was ok , looking back I was living quite a fast paced existence & ive now come down with a bang 😖

      All the best to you xx
