Iv had depression for years and been on anti depressants for nearly four years which mostly enabled me to work and funtcion normally.  This week it got too much again and i quit my job and dont feel able to return to any job. I have mortgage payments etc due in a few weeks and now no income coming in and in a horrible frame of mind to make any decisions which can help me now.. Is there anything i can do at this stage when im no longer able to work and the meds are effective enough or will i just end up loosing my home and killing myslef??

    Hello sorry to hear your not feeling great right now. I would suggest contacting your mortgage lender and explaining your situation and also the citizens advice bureau for free confidential support. The worse thing you can do is ignore your bills, companies are usually co- operative and give you some breathing space while you sort yourself out. Also citizens advice will look into what benefits you may be entitled to claim as you are sick. Please visit your GP as well and see what is on offer.Hope this helps you.

    Dear Joe,

    In the first instant please go and see a doctor that you feel you can trust, explain to

    Them exactly and honestly just how low you are feeling. Try not to worry about any financial difficulties until you feel at least a little calmer and able to concentrate......

    The citizens advice bureau can be 'very helpful with all kinds of advice on your

    Claiming any and all benefits that you are entitled to... do you also have access to a local " community cafe " they are trying excellent with many various types of help

    From free legal advice and benefits claims, to supporting and helping you sort out

    Various forms and a one to one support... as you are obviously unable to work at

    The present time through no fault of your own, you are unquestionably entitled to

    Help ( you have paid taxes ) so please try not to panic to much, have you got any

    Body close to you to that you can learn on ?

    But firstly please see your GP and explain your situation.

    My heart goes out to you, you will begin my thoughts, please take care, sincere regards, DEIRDRE x

    Decide that this is not what you want. Decide that this low mood is course for action. It is temporary, it won't last. If it does last for longer than 3 weeks and you do feel that way call the samaritans, call a hospital, talk to people. Take up a new hobby or join a gym. Force yourself to exercise. As for killing yourself, you've obviously got a good set of hands, you could go out and really do something for the world. You feel this way for a reason, you are mentally ill. That can be fixed and treated, death can't-I'm not trying to dissuade you, just give you an outsider's option because it looks like you've got plenty of options to me
