    Depression, anxiety and dreading work

    I have to be you work in an hour, and I'm struggling with wanting to call in, because I just can't deal. I can't be the only one who struggles with this, right? I'm coming down off a manic episode and am really crashing... I don't want to lose another job. :(

    Can't listen to music as i get messages inplanted in my mind

    I thought I was getting better but I still cannot listen to Animals by pink floyd. It seems to trigger my voices telling me to end it all in a specific way. Does anyone else get messages from music. Should I tell my Pdoc about this.

I have long periods of depression and anxiety which follow short hypo manic episodes and I am just coming out of 17 months of anxiety which has left me very fragile. I joined to meet people in a similar situation...

    After 3 years i finally get my diagnosis, psychotic depression. How exciting does that sound? i have no friends, i'm barely able to keep a relationship and now it feels like the world is crashing down. What have i done that is so terribly wrong in an earlier life to deserve this.

    bipolar or depression

    I have always been told that I have depression and that's what I've been treated for, unsuccessfully for one reason or another, either meds not working or poor side effects.

    crashing down

    I have had such a good couple of days. Tonight I went for a family meal and had a lovely time. Lots of laughter and chat. I have just come home and now in tears I feel like everything has just come crashing down. I want to self harm so badly. I think I know what had triggered this off.
