      Hi thinking of trying the older style meds cos the modern ones have never worked, was stuck on them years ago. The isolation is unbearable, not everyone realises how problems that some of as have had jeopordise employment etc, when you have gaps in employment even if you've been raising a child on your own when you have mental illness and been treated like an idiot and offered tablets that can affect your sleep. This was a few years ago but it still winds me up x

      Know what you mean I lost a job through incapability a few years ago.  Totally agree about the isolation and lots of people out there need educating about depression. Think that's why this site is invaluable as we can talk to others that understand what we are going through. Do your friends and family offer support x

      It is much harder when feeling so alone. Once you get sorted by GP, what about joining a club or evening course, get to know a few people, it could give you new interests and make you more positive and upbeat on life. Gentle exercise such as a walk helps and I find I think more constructively rather than sitting at home thinking of all that is wrong in my world. Don't get me wrong I have bad days where it feels comforting to wallow in my misery but be careful not to be in that state for too long as that could lead down a long sad miserable road. We can't be happy all the time but fresh air, people to pass the time of day with and a couple of interests all help to improve your mood and emotions, with the help of your doctor and maybe therapy where you can get it all off your chest would help you back on track. Go for it !
