Hi Just joined today hoping for a bit of support, I have had depression for years and its been manageable had up and downs but mananged to hold down a job and pay the bills.
Then Bang I start getting these attacks which cripple me, I cant get out of bed most days been off work since December, the symptoms are so real I have been to A and E twice in the last month thinking I am taking a heart attack or a stroke, I feel so stupid when they say its all in my head but its all very real to me.
I live alone I dont lock the door at night incase I take a turn and no one can get in, I cant leave the house, if I have a doctors appointment I get a taxi there and back.(which I cant really afford0
I have to try and get back to work or I will lose my flat SSP does not go far.
Doctor is not much good I still take my anti depressant but for the anxiety Ive been out on a 3 month plus waiting list for a therapist.
I'm at the end of my tether.
Work think Im pulling a fast one, they are basically saying pull yourself together.!!! Does anyone understand????
