Ive been suffering with anxiety and depression for years now. I was severly bullied as a child at school, so often used to shut myself away and concentrate on my school work etc. Well Im 34 years old now and I still shut myself away my mum and dad live in weymouth which is a long way from me so I dont get to see them that often. I dont have any close friends, just a few aquaintances at work etc. I have worked for the company for 12 years. 5 years ago we were relocated so I had to move away from the very few friends that i did have and start a new life somewhere new. The only problem is that it actually made my condition worse. I feel so lonely. last weekend was the final straw I realised that I had not talked to anybody from friday evening right the way through to Monday morning was I was back at work . I dont know why but I decided enough was enough and I went to see the doctor yesterday. Ive been reading some of the other posts on here and I agree with what some people are saying about GP's. The GP i saw at my local practice just kept going on about helping myself and that she couldnt just create a social life and a group of friends for me...well yeah doh I know that. she has then prescribed my 10mg of Citalopram for next 4 weeks and has referred me counselling session, the only problem is there is a massive waiting list and I wont get to see one for 3months!. Anyway she has said that I need to go back in 3 weeks to see how Im getting on.
Ive only had one dose yesterday evening and it made me feel so poorly I went straight to bed. Just felt Like throwing up all the time...I still do and Ive had an awful headache and I couldnt sleep a wink last night...not that I sleep very well mind you.
Is this what its supposed to be like or do I go back to the Docs and say give me something else cos these things just make me wanna vomit big time?
thanks for your help and its reall comforting to read some posts on ere.
