I have yet to see my GP about my possible depression - obviously it'd probably be best to go asap but I'm having to wait until June. In the mean time everything has been feeling extra overwhelming at the minute to the point where it physically hurts, I'm not too sure what to do. I usually self harm when thoughts and feelings get too much but even this is offering no solace at the moment - there doesn't seem to be any moments of relief and to top it off I have become completely unable to fall asleep, meaning I don't get any breaks from it whatsoever!
I have tried to take my mind off it by socialising with my housemates, but I just feel nothing when I'm with them: things I used to enjoy so much, now become more of a chore than anything else. Is there any way to control these feelings until I can see my GP? Or am I stuck in this rut until I can get myself an appointment - and even then there is no guarantee it'll help, I suppose.
FYI: Reason I am yet to see the GP is because the only practitioner I feel comfortable speaking with is based back home, I am currently finishing University and am not currently signed on at the practise - I am sorting this out currently but, have no idea what to do in the mean time.
