Hi all

I've been coping moderately well with depression (and some anxiety and a generally introverted and Aspie personality) for years. With medication and at different times with various forms of therapy.

Now I'm not coping with work to the point where I am wondering if I will quit before being sacked, not that I can afford either. I'm pretty sure I should change jobs, probably go contracting to be less dependent on the culture in any one company. But job/contract hunting requires effort and confidence I just don't have!

I'm in the IAPT system but it takes so long to get referrals and assessments.

Anyway that's me for now.
