I've felt down, confused and basically not my normal self for almost four months. And it took until of few days ago for me to realise that this isn't normal, and I should just try and ignore it and put on a smile and hope this feeling passes.
I finally decided that I need to confront this feeling so booked an appointment with my GP. That was today, and I was told that I'm likely to be suffering from moderate to severe depression. I'm 19 years old and have decided to opt for CBT.
I want to make this descussion to help people who've felt like I do, and don't feel like there's anyone you can speak to, or you're worried how to tell your GP you think you could be depressed.
I want to be able to update this as my therapy progresses, I've felt so much better just having confronted the issue, and knowing that I'm taking steps to deal with this confusing feeling.
I hope that sharing my experience can help people to acknowledge the issue, and take the same steps to deal with it.
