So about a year 1/2 ago I started suffering from depression which was classed as severe depression while in University. I had a lot of family problems and I hated some of the people I worked with (in uni), meaning I had some very dark days where I felt like removing myself and other people from the face of the earth.
Now my Doctor was concerned about my stability back then and I did see a mental health nurse, but I never took it forward since I ended up going on holiday and he refereed me back to my GP. After that I told my GP I am fine I had a nice holiday and kept busy away from family and their issues.
I started volunteering for a first aid charity and basically kept busy I actually really enjoy it. I keep active as possible and try to balance my time, I weighted 100KG back then but now I weight around 80KG (was 76, but been lazy with the gym!), but I am maintaining it.
I have recently graduated from uni (in July) I work as a software engineer, but to be honest I have been working on computers for so long I am bored of it, constantly sitting and solving code (and gaining weight ), that's why I volunteer and work as a freelance developer, but I am just bored and this is where my issues come in.
I get very irritated and angry quickly and find it hard to concentrate (I don't take it out on people just keep it to myself), I struggle to read books and I have a lot of things "I'd like to do one day" planned.... but I can't seem to now balance my time since starting work, to be honest I think this software career is not for me.... I'm more of an active person...and family issues are a big problem I'd like to move but I can't at the moment.
I did apply to join the army, but they obviously rejected me as I my depression exceeded 1 year (Depression started around 2015, felt OK during my break off but kicked of again when I went back so it was flagged as recurring and exceeding 1 year, I stopped seeing Doctor in September 2016 and off meds since 2016 March)
I don't know what to do, I think family issues was the main thing being my cause for depression and me not achieving grades I wanted back in School (I regret it now..) life is just not what I expected.
I really feel like Policing is my type of career was always something I wanted to do when young, my current force recruiting but I am not sure if they would even accept me or I should wait another year? I also enjoy my charity work I do so I do have experience with working with people started doing charity work at the end of 2015...but then again I also want to build the next social network and work on 10 different things...and deal with family issues.
Can anyone off me some advice suggestions, and I would like to know if I could possibly join the police, I think I'd enjoy it....
