Hi, I have not been around for a while, well mostly because of working fulltime and thinking that I was coping ok.
Lots of things in my life have started going wrong, they all seem to be happening all at once. Now all of a sudden it has hit me like a ton of bricks. I am not sleeping, I have a permanent lump in my throat, feel sickly and just keep bursting into tears. The thing is I only cry when no-one is around.
Yesterday I had to work somewhere I didn't know and I felt quite panicky, but once I got there and became familiar with the work etc, I relaxed a bit more. My confidence is slowly going though and I feel I can't talk to anyone because I am too embaressed to tell people that I am quite depressed.
Most of this has been building up since July, I have a husband who is really supportive, but I don't want to keep burdening all this on him.
I know I should visit my GP, but I feel like I just want to run away from everything and everyone. I don't want to be like this, do you think I might be on the verge of a breakdown?
I do think a lot of my problems are from things in the past as well as family (in-laws) problems which are ongoing.
When I am at work I am keeping busy and manage to hide my depression, but how long can I keep all of this up?
I just wish I knew what to do.

Yes, you should make an appointment and see your GP asap.  Running away won't make you feel better, it'll just be avoiding the challenges and you won't like yourself for that.
Let us know what the GP says ... we're here for you.

Hi djb, We all go through up's and down's in our lives and have stressors that can make things difficult...but, when your crying, not sleeping, and really feel that there is a problem here then you do need to go to your doctor and discuss it with him.  Depression is chemical and most of us no matter how hard we try cant control it on our own without the help of an antidepressant.  Please do speak with your physician, you wont be judged by them...and know that we are always here for you also.  Take care
