i am a 26 yr old male who has 2 months ago ended a 9yr relationship that really only seemed to result in a 2 yr old that makes me want to live. i have previously come close to changing that, hence the end of the relationship. since, i have started the ball rolling in getting my own place and met a great girl who after starting out as fun has turned to more. my only issue is my 'presumed' anxiety and depression is crumbling me. i worry when im happy, i cant stop thinking about the ifs and buts of everything said and done, from work to family and social surroundings. i have a huge insecurity expecting the worst from everything, and cannot stop myself no matter how reassuring family and friends are. I have requested counseling from my gp and from an independant charity but after two months have had no contact yet. i have no funds to seek counseling otherwise, and feel i have no where to go for help. if anyone can point me in the right direction, i would be very grateful
thank you in advance
** i use the term 'presumed' anxiety due to no official diagnosis, previous diagnosis of depression and symptoms i feel are connected, such as constant rawking my legs, to the point of bleeding, sleeplessness, headaches etc.

Hi there and welcome
sorry to hear you are not getting the help you need n want
i know how it feels to hv a relationship go that had lasted a long time i too hv just gone thru it
it can cause you to feel so many unwanted emotions as you know
but at least you hv someone in your life and your 2 yr old as wel
i dont hv any idea where you are from but here in Ontario we have Mental Health Clinics that we can go to

i would really suggesst you go to nearest ER if you continue feeling this way they can no doubt get the ball rolling alot faster for you to get some help....

in the interrim keep posting n talking to us we do care and this is a great place with fantastic ppl

take care you n happy you have that lil 2 yr old
are you on any meds at all
again glad you found us

hey, thanx for reply.
i live inthe uk, and due to the status of the national health service and the work that non profit charities have to do for very little, i am not surprised i am still waiting, but still, i need help asap, before i get back to whr i was last december, "i have previously come close to changing that". i have had everything going for me recently since breaking up, meeting someone new and the fresh start, but because of the way i think and act due to my thinking i cannot help myself. i recognise my anxieties and insecurities but apart from counseling (hopefully) i cannot think of how to solve my problems.

thanx agen

Are you on any medications? I would suggest talking to your family doctor, they really do help ALOT. Hugs!

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear you are having a hard time at the moment but you will find support and information here, I live in the UK and what I did was go and speak with my GP and asked to be refered to the local mental health team were I have found great support and had counseling on the NHS you could also phone mind which is a mental health charity and have local offices in most areas and they could also point you in the right direction. I hope things get better for you soon and keep posting here to let us know how you are getting on and if you have any more questions then do ask.

take care
