I have basically turned into a recluse. Ive turned to drink which I know is becoming a real problem and cant even bring myself to go to seek advice from my doctor. I havve a long history of depression. Over the years i feel as thoughh the doctors think I'm just an annoyance and dont know how to begin to get help again. Pleas if there is anyone who could give me some advice and reassurance I'd be so grateful. Also if anyone is able to advise me how I could go about making friends in my area I would be grateful. I feel so isolated and lonely but again don't know where to begin. Thank you.

hello ,:welcome: to the forum xx i think the best thing would be to go see your gp and explain to them what you have said to us here ,they will probably refer you to mental health services who will assess you xx
as for making friends in your area ,you could google local social groups ,where i live there is a mental health social group run by service users that i am thinking of attending ,there may be something similar in your area and you could meet friends there
you also have us now to ,im so glad you have joined the forum so we can support you ,hopefully you will meet friends here too
lots of love from fairy lu xx

Hi Tina,
I'm very sorry your going through this, please do visit your dr. They can like fairy Lu said refer you for a mental health assessment.
Having mental illness is frightening, I understand your pain.
I hope you meet lots of new people on the forum, and offline as well.
Take care

Hello tina332211. I'm sorry you're having to go through this. It's very trying sometimes, I know.

Depression drove me to the bottle as well, but be very careful it doesn't become a full blown addiction because it will obviously make matters worse on a number of levels. That's coming from personal experience.

Also, have a look on the internet for support groups in your area regarding friendships/support. Quite often there are things of that nature going on.
