Hi, my name's Helena, I'm 22 and come from a town near Newcastle. I'm a single mum of a 2yr old girl. I am receiving treatment for depression, stress and anxiety. I am currently on Mirtazapine 15mg. I have tried this at 30mg but I was becoming more depressed due to rapid weight gain. I have tried various other drugs at different strengths, but have been told that SSRI's don't agree with me. I have only my partner and mam to talk to, and so i eventually wear them down and i have no one to lean on. I have no friends and no way of making them. I hope someone else out there is going, or has been through this and can help me. I'm scared i might loose sight of what I've got and do something daft. I feel so lonely.
