Hi

I have suffered with anxiety for at least 12 years, I think after my dad died with a particularly traumatic few years of him suffering with progressive M.S. I was 17 when I started showing physical symptoms of M.S myself but I quickly found out these were symptoms of anxiety. I'm now 32 with 2 kids and my anxiety has slipped into depression which is affecting my family, my partner told me yesterday that she can't continue with me in the state I am in, as depression has led me to blaming every one of my negative emotions on other people, mainly her, as a way of rationalising my illness.

Joining this forum is just one of the ways I am seeking help.

I'm hoping my desire to get help with depression and anxiety lasts and would love some advice on how to keep motivated to get better.

I would really appreciate anyone who could offer advice or help, and I also can give out any advice that has helped me over these last years, I would love to help others manage their illness too

Hi I understand how depression can affect family life & it’s horrible for everyone. How I feel has affected every relationship I’ve ever had so I don’t anymore, for 10 years.
Have you considered Counselling via the nhs ya can self referral or ask ya gp to, at the moment it’s telephone counselling only.
