Hello everyone, thought I had better say hello!

I am unsure exactly where my condition actually falls, but it seems to be on the borders of stress and depression related. I was diagnosed as such after revisiting my doctor for tiredness, and up to recently had been doing ok.

The past couple of weeks I had begun to regress to how I felt a couple of years ago, so with the doctors knowledge, I went back to a tablet even day rather than every second.

Sitting at the computer the other day, I thought I would see if there was any forums that I could visit to get reduce the feeling of being isolated and forgotten and stumbled on these forums. I read through some post and decided to join up. I'm not big on posting to forums, so I will probably be floating in the back ground most of the time. It seems enough sometimes.

Still, more importantly, hello to you all!

Reading about similar feelings does help. There is a journal section if you need to write down how you feel daily.

It is good to take the tablets every day, i have always been told to do that by my doctor. I hope you start to feel better soon and that relapse doesn't happen or feels less bad than the last time.

Life can be stressful. Are you taking any supplements in addition to tablets prescribed? I take multivitamins and eat oily fish twice every week if i can. I also make sure i get sunshine on my arms for 20 minutes every day and walk for a bit of exercise.

Welcome to the forum. Life can be pretty stressful, sometimes its good to just take a step back n just focus on yourself for a while instead of everyone else round you. I find reading other people's situations similar to mine and posting advice etc helps me a bit
