Hi I’m a new member, I’m a husband and father of three young kids. I’ve recently started treatment for depression after realising I was suffering from persistent low moods and the occasional panic attack.
I’ve been really struggling with my mood particularly over the Christmas break. I’ve never had a healthy relationship with alcohol. Have been a binge drinker for my entire adult life but have only just made the connection between this and my depression which I’ve also probably had my entire adult life.
Anyway I’ve been on a few horrific binges and done some shameful things which in turn feeds my depression and so now I feel completely destroyed inside.
I’ve signed up for counselling with my local authority and I have an emergency GP appointment later today! Another problem I have though is that when I get my head together to do stuff, I feel like a fraud and that I should just deal with it. I’m finding it really hard work confronting it rather than living with it.
Sorry for the ramble I just wanted to write this stuff down!
