    Call the doctors, you've just recognised the pattern do it now. Ask for assistance with CBT therapy, and wellness help. Do it I've been through it so many times. Its only when you see it you can act before it all starts again xxx

    Hi Tracy.... I agree with Sara and Dave, get some help before it gets worse and try not to isolate yourself, friends and family can be a great help if they understand what you're going through.

    Being positive is the key although I know that's easy to say and hard to do when we get down.

    Keep in touch and take care.

    Hi Tracy

    are you seeing your GP?   Are you on any medication?  If so, it may well have to be changed.  I think all of s know what you're going through.  I staved 2 ribs on Hogmannay and the pain from these is nothing to the depression I'm feeling.  I feel as if I'm wading through treacle.  I'm on Mirtazapinea but suffer from constant palpitations which only start to wear off in the late evening and then the next day it all starts up again.

    i do feel that you need to see a professional, although I've found the help is limited and I'm left to my own devices.  It's absolute he'll.  I had a small stroke a few years ago and also broke my leg but both were nothing in relation to this.

    hi tracy i know how you feel i feel the same , its horrible , its no life , we feel so alone , but we are so strong to keep living , and thats what is going to get us through this , we must never stop and give up no matter how bad as one day we will be better and we can look back and see why we beat this horrible condition , there is a life for us ,with the right help and thinking we will get better , we must not be to hard on ourselves it is the depression talking not us ,we know what we want to feel like but this illness keeps knocking us back , but we will be well again it just takes times , please go and see your gp and tell them how you feel it is the start of your recovery , we all try and be strong but there is know shame in asking for help , maybe to some of us if we had asked for help sooner things might not have got as bad as they had , take care
