Hi everyone. I've been wondering what to say here. I'm 29 and I have had a problem with depression all my life, but it was only 'officially' diagnosed when I was 24. Since my teens I've also had a problem with self harm, and although it isn't as regular as it once was it is still something that feels like it is with me constantly that I am battling against. Since the sudden death of my father a couple of years ago my depression has once again come to the surface and apart from my GP slapping me back onto antidepressants at the start of 2008 (which don't even work in my opinion) I've had nothing in the way of support. I did get referred to mental health services last August but apart from a lot of paper shuffling from them I've still not seen any real action..... and it turned out recently I was apparently referred to the wrong people anyway.... But that is probably another post all together lol. Anxiety has now been added to my list of ailments and it seems there might be a glimmer of hope that MHS are going to spring into action.... but I'll believe it when I see it.:) I'll save all that whinge for another time.:p

I've tried a few 'support' forums before.... mainly the sort that offer support with self harm, but haven't really found them to be what I was looking for..... in fact I left the last one I joined cos it made me decidedly worse.
I'm hoping that here might be different as it seems to deal with a larger variety of things.

Anyway I'll stop harping now....:redface:
