Hi.

Not sure if this is the right place, but I thought I should post up an intro before wading straight in (it's only polite) :)

Anyhow, I'm really just here for some possible advice (and maybe a kick up the backside):

I've had emotional 'issues' for years now since my teens - mood swings, mostly 'up' (happy and agitated), but punctuated by crushing depression - but I've choked them down and passed them off as just me being me (and got away with it).

Recently though my moods have escalated: I was suicidally depressed for most of Feb, and then I've been really up with the occasioanl crash since March.

My wife and kids are starting to worry and my work colleagues have really started to notice my erratic behaviour.

Suffice to say being a typical bloke I'm being slow in getting proper help, and some days I honestly don't believe I have a problem, cos I feel great!

I just really don't know how to broach the subject with my GP, so I'm putting it off I guess.

Anyhow, that's me :D
