Hi shaz..you are obviously not feeling too good these days and have decided to seek help and that's great ~ takes lots of courage to do that...well done Along with Shy I would suggest going along to your doc and telling him how you are feeling just now - and go from there..explain that you are not too fussed on going on meds just now and wish to seek counselling/therapy as a first option. My only other suggestion is to look within your community for courses for building selfesteem etc. or if you are religiously inclined maybe seeking help through your local church.
Look forward to hearing how you are getting on.
