Hi, i was at doctors around 2 months ago had a really low mood come on to me out of no where while i was at work, it made me have thoughts about life and whats the point ect, i calmed down and it went away within half an hour, i had a really dry mouth and i had to call someone but when i was on the phone i didnt want to speak, i was worried about this for a while and didnt really feel normal till about 3 weeks ago, i was giving propolono beta blockers, they put it down as anxiety, so i started taking them and i started to get back to myself eventually i had been feeling fine or to myself for the past 2 weeks and my mum got taken into hospital last week for mental health depression, shes been telling me everything and its been heavy, im only 21 and shes been going through this for a while now its taking an affect on me i think, i had been feeling back to myself untill she went in, now the past week ive been off work, feeling i just want to sleep it off, my appetite is away, when my friends are round i gradually feel better, my eyes feel heavy, i get strange thoughts running through my mind sometimes, i dont really like being alone, i dont know if this is depression or anxiety or how i can help myself get better i dont want this to get any worse??? Im waiting on a mental health team to speak to me before i decide to take tablets, im just worried incase i end up badly depressed or if im already depressed...

    Sounds like you have slight health anxiety mine started the same way dry mouth and panic. You will over come just make sure you do what you need to I order to get better, that means taking mess and going to therapy.

    It definitely sounds likes anxiety and not so much depression. Try to distract yourself when a thought starts. Get up and walk, hum a tune, breath deep from your abdomen, listen to a favorite song, meditate, shut your eyes and visualize your favorite place on earth. Prayers to you that this helps.

      Thanks so much for your reply, hate going through it but if my mums not well it cant be helped its maybe just a time im going through, anxiety runs in my family which makes me think its anxiety, i dont get panic attacks as such it's just feeling crappy and horrible feelings in my stomach and worrying about so many things. Need to try and stop x

      Wow, your story sounds just like mine. The thoughts came out of nowhere and persisted. I have been on Prozac for 3 weeks, so still early into the mediation, and have been depressed for 8 weeks now. Learning to control it better and hopefully the intrusive thoughts all dissapear soon!

      Yea its not too great, im not on any medication yet, i think it might help if i did though, yea mines came out the blue once i came back my holiday in july it took a month to dissappear it went away alone then one day all of a sudden i just hit a low mood and ive sorta been worried about it all ever since, i think alot of it is to do with worrying about my mum, just maybe a hard time im going through, hopefully you can get back to normal you definitely will, it all takes time i guess, im just a bad worrier and it doesnt help atall i cant help that though x

    Bless you....please don't lose heart...it really can and does..!! Get better...I was like you, I was at the point of suicide...I woke up every morning with a sense of SHEER...UTTER DREAD...I avoided everyone and everything...as we were going on holiday a few weeks later...I went to SEE my doctor...I just broke down and told her everything....she put me onto SERTRALINE 100mgs....after a few weeks I began to feel better..I have been on them for about 10 yrs...I have had the dosage raised twice...I.am now on 200mgs...

    I still have days that aren't too good, b it I carry on ...

    Only do essential things..you can leave many things until you feel stronger.....try to eat well ....and....sleep well...I there are things you cannot change...accept them and try not to worry about them......keep in touch with your friends..and be honest about just how low you feel, they will want to help and support you.....

    Only do what you need to...your body and your mind both need a rest....I wish you and all on this forum...big, big, big very big hugs....please, please all, see your GP....in my thoughts and prayers ...DEE. xxxx

      Thanks alot for your reply, i dont feel suicidal as such i just feel so crap when im alone and cant think straight, i just dont want it to get any worse to get to the point i feel suicidal because ill panic so much, i think i maybe need to try tablets im not on any anti depressant yet, they offered me fluxotine but i said id wait untill i spoke to a councillor forst, would staying off tablets and trying to overcome it lead to worse or could that work out better for me? Or is it possible to overcome these worrys without tabletS?
