    I understand exactly how you feel. And self harm isn't good I know and I would t advise it to others but coming from a current self harmer, I do know how it somehow helps. If you can, try and find something else to occupy you so you can try to stop self harming, I know it's hard I'm still struggling with that. Just know you aren't alone, there's plenty of people on this site that care and are here to listen. Have you tried going back to your GP for further help? Maybe a change of medication and more in depth treatment.

    There are plenty of people on this forum who understand what depression feels like, because we've been through it. You can rant on this site if it help. All I can say is if your medication isn't working, go back to your doctor and tell him/her how awful you feel. Are you in the UK? Is there a Crisis Team you can be referred to? When I had a bad time, I had to keep going back to the doctor, before they took me seriously. So keep pushing - you have to believe that you are worth it. And if you feel desperate - call the Samaritans. If you are in UK you can call NHS Direct. Don't give up on yourself.

    Hi Steve

    Please go back to GP and insist that something is done.  I know it is very hard work to do this but you need to get something sorted.  I believe that there is a light at the end of the tunnel but we all have to travel different lengths of tunnel.  I am unsure where you arein the UK  but I know in my home town there is a Mental Health Team who you can self refer too.the UK  and seek help and guidance.  See if there is one in your town.  Please seek help  Love Joyce xx

    Hi Steve, I do not have an answer to your query re height but I have just had my first increase in metazapine 30mg and waiting to see if it works.  I dont think my depression is as bad as yours as I do function and has good period late afternoon which gives me faith that things will work out.  I wish you all the best xx
