Hi All,
My first time here & it seems like a haven
My depressions have come from having an anxiety disorder for 6 years, ( so I have medication for the anxiety)
And i'm trying a multivitamin, cos I think that could help. Some times my PMS is shocking :) I know it's not funny or fun but I'll either laugh or cry, so..
But more seriously, I study at the moment seems the assignments are draining & I used to be a journo I think assignments should be a breeze, sadly no they're not... I just can't write anymore..
I'm supposed to be doing a work placement but haven't gone to it for 4 days, - my confidence is just shot. That's because the anxiety has had an impact on my confidence & self-esteem. Currently I'm taking sickies from my placement & my assignments are overdue. But I do have Dr's certificates.
Today's been a real downer day for me. I'm not used to talking about my anxiety or depressions, what I've done is, become a recluse but when I am in company I'm painfully quiet 90% of the time. I don't really know how to ask for help, but I'm tired of being tired & lost.
So that's my intro, & hopefully the multivitamins might help a little bit. Hope I can get to know people here... Now I'll go back to bed, I think :)- it's a beautiful evening with a soft breeze & the streets are quiet again- mmm, peace & quiet. Evenings are my favorite times. thanks for the group being here, I feel a bit better now just know, just because I've confided here a bit. smurf

Hi and welcome to the boards.  Sorry to hear you are feeling down.  Like you, I don't talk to my friends or family about my depression but have found a therapist that I know that no matter what I say she will not judge me.  For a long time I refused to leave the house and did not answer my phone but forcing my self to go see my therapist helped me break that cycle.

Good luck and I hope tomorrow is a better day.  Don't try making huge steps, it's all the little steps that will make a difference.
