    You have had a really rough time and now to focus on your good points.  Dont do anything silly take to the people at Samaritans they will listen and give advice.  I can understand your loneliness but cant you join a club doing something you like and meeting people.  I also have to listen to me head telling me all sorts of things especially when im on my own im trying to move forward in life.  Why dont you rent out rooms in your house then you would have company.  Even thought my partner just kicked me out i have never spent a christmas with him in the 3 years he always had a excuse to spend it with his kids leaving me out every time.  Please go chat to your doctor as you need the help i did and im starting to feel more human every day.  If your ever in Chelmsford meet me for coffee and a chat

      Please feel free to chat with me anytime and i know the feeling of utter dispair when you feel hopeless but please dont do anything silly as its your kids that will suffer.  Please call samaritans now and chat to someone please it will make you feel better to have a friendly voice on the phone.  I am also alone at christmas as my family have shunned me but i need to sort ME and sort MY life before i can move on and i will and so will you.  Families can be the worst when there is a death of a family member but know please that we are here and we want to support you no matter what.  I dont have a car yet as only got back the 17th of this month but as soon as i do Warren we going for a huge cup of coffee and a long walk.  Just know that you are awesome and you have good qualities you just need to tell yourself the good not let your mind be negative.  Sending a big hug my friend

    Dear Warren, 

    Mate you are having a terrible time, you must get to a doctor, Phscologist and a coucilor (All) as soon as possible as all that's going on in your head could drive you insane. 

    Are you taking any MEDs and do you think they are working for you. 

    Can you seperate the feelings of Depression and Anxiety (D&A) and able to write a list of each ? 

    Are you sleeping and are you working ? 

    I have no faith in antidepressants but you have to try them as you maybe lucky. 

    If you can read my posts on this site and see if anything looks like it could sound of interest.

    Regards Col

    Bris

    Hello Warren. You don't need me to tell you that you are having a tough time! But what is needed now is for you to get out of your head "your thoughts" and get into 'action'! Make a call to your GP or any doctor. Aiming at an appointment with a counselor! Please don't let yourself go any further down. Gods speed! I'm sure you can tell how much we care here as we all know how painful depression and anxiety is!! Diane

    I am sorry for your struggles.

    Do not worry about going to the Doctors. I am of the belief that if you go to them on your own and ask for some help dealing with your problems that they will do all that they can to help you as an outpatient. The goal is to keep people functioning in society.

    Give it a go as counselling and perhaps some medication to get you through the worst of it will be of great help.             I have been there done that.

    Best wishes and I hope the dark clouds overhead will soon blow away in the wind along with your fears and worries.

    Virtual hugs

      Oh , now I completely understand your reluctance.

      Yes,i agree....check in with a counselor. You CAN get through this.

      Perhaps the anti-depressant you are taking right now is not the right one for you. There are quite a number of alternatives that are available,it might be necessary to switch another one.And, if you have just started with this one ....it does take about 6 to 8 weeks for the full effects to be felt. 

      In the meantime stay in touch with this forum,try to do the things you enjoy and most importantly remember you are not alone.Many here (on the forum) have been through similar experiences and certainly have felt all hope is lost.

      We are all here for the same reason, reassurance and encouragement!

      Keep putting one foot in front of the other !

      Blessings
