I just wanted to welcome you to the healing well depression forum. You have come to a good place, there are a lot of understanding people here.
I would definately go back to the psychiatrist and think about therapy. To see a therapist would probably help you a lot to get your life back on track. It is good to talk things out.
In the meantime we are here for you, so ask anything that you would like and we will do our best to come up with an answer for you.
Good luck with finding a job.
I too wanted to welcome you to HealingWell and I hope you find all the support and advice you need here. With regard to your post, It sounds like you are getting towards the end of the tunnel but not quite there yet... perhaps seeing a councillor once a week would benifit you? Not as extreme as seeing a psych but someone to give you that helping hand as you get to the end of the tunnel?
I notice you are in the UK like I am. Have you considered ringing the Samritans? (08547 90 90 90) They are a fantastic souce of support and advice. How did your job inverview go? How have you been feeling recently?
Im glad that you have not given up Paul. I got rejected from 10-15 jobs within about 3 months. It doesnt make me any less of a person and it doesnt change the skills that I have. Keep trying and you will get there... I just cant tell you when! lol
