Hi, I've never done this before but I was desperate for somewhere to put down how I'm feeling since I don't have anyone to talk to about things.

I've been sufferring with anxiety and depression for about 6 years now. Plucked up the courage recently to go back to doctors and I'm back on a couple of medications for now and waiting for a place for some cbt.

Some days are better than others but they are getting fewer and fewer and because of where I work I keep getting these thoughts of how easy it would be to get my hands on a crap load of tablets and just be done with it.
I don't have anyone to talk to about this stuff since I've isolated myself from absolutely everyone. I guess I'd just like to hear how others are coping

Hey and :welcome: to the forum.

You sound a lot like me, you really do.

Have you been told of how long it will take till you get cbt or is it a case of wait and see?

Well done for going to the Doctors, that must of been so hard for you to pluck up the courage.

It's hard at times it really is. Sometimes it's a waiting game but there is a light there somewhere, ready to shine for you.

I think it's best you take a look round the forum as well as of course chatting here.

Thanks MarlieeBee that's really nice.

Just a case of wait and see. To be honest I'm not into the idea much but have gotten so desperate recently that I'll give it a go if there's a chance it will help. That's if I can actually make myself go when it come to it of course.

It's taken me over a year to even go through the assessments I've been having. Desperate times lead to desperate measures as such.

Welcome to the forum.
I hope that the CBT referral process happens quickly and you've not got too long to wait.
How long have you been on the meds? I'm sure you know that they can take a while to work.
Try and hang in there - better days are ahead, though I know how hard it can be. x

Have only been back on them for a few months, different meds to what I've had in the past and I hate the initial weeks getting used to them

I hate the weekend. Have finally managed to drag myself out of bed. It's a friend's birthday day out today and I've isolated myself from everyone so much that they just aren't interested anymore. Not being there today will make them even more distant. Feeling really restless now inside the house feeling like I could tear my hair out but thinking about getting myself ready and going out just makes me anxious and panicky

maybe it won't be that bad being out? they are your friends... sometimes it helps to get out of your own head, even if it's scary.
but don't push yourself too much...

take care.
