Hi Lynne and thanks for trusting us enough to say that. Go and have a chat with your GP. Take a print out of your posting if it helps gets things started. Many people here have or have had depression in one form or another and will understand how you feel. Welcome.

Hello and :welcome: Lynne :flowers:

I can only echo as others have said , go see your gp & tell him/her exactly what you've told us.
At MHF there is alway's some one around to offer support too.

Hi Lynne,

I can empathise with your situation being in the midst of depression with a history of self harm. It's great that you've found this forum as it is a great place to off load how you are feeling while also get loads of support. Great though this is it isn't an alternative to seeing your gp. I think of it more as something that runs along side the help that I get from the professionals and I know that I couldn't do without any of them. Going to see your GP is a key step in getting rid of those bad feelings and working towards some happier times (and all the evidence shows that you will have better days again!).

I appreciate that it's never easy to go and talk to someone for the first time about how you are feeling (often I did more crying than talking - sometimes this said enough about how I was feeling!) and I think it's a great idea of Dollits to print out your post and take that along with you to get the conversation going. It does however get easier. Do make an appointment. Sorry if I've come across as a bit lecturey - I'll reprimand myself for that one!

Take care and keep posting!
Honey, xx
