I am looking to connect with other people who have a depression like myself.
My partner suggested this and I thought it might be a good idea.
I apoligise if this is long winded but I need to get this off my chest so to speak.
I have a long history of low self esstem and depression for as long as I can remember.
It is well controlled with Sertraline 150mg which I take in the morning. recently I have been going trough a rough patch with family concerns and aslso work has been playing a role in my troubles.
the pressure with work, (I work in the NHS in a large london hospital) has been unbearable and now I am really considering taking action. I feel as a memebr of staff I am being bullied by management and with constant late finishes I feel like as if I cant take a lot more. I have raised my concerns to a collegeue of mine and the response I got was 'I am the same' I really do not know what to do. It has all come to ahead and I was really ill on monday which resorted to me calling the GP for help. I have now been signed off work for 10 days because of it. I spoke to OCC health at work to let them know of the situation and asked to speak to one of the nurses there to let them know that I am off sick.
The response I got was from the receptionist was 'I have to email them' To which I thought, no I dont want you to email I want to speak to someone!
I am sorry if this sounds like I am sounding off. But what I want to know if any other NHS workers are feeling the same as myself, or in fact if anyone has something which would help me to try and help myself in improving my mood.
